Title: Thomas Butler Gunn Diaries: Volume 10, page 64, December 28-29, 1858

Description: Mentions that Jesse Haney went with Mort Thomson to Boston on business.


[Oliver Wendell] Holmes report "capital.") To Frank Leslie's as [Frederick] Watson had written to me, wanting me to send in something "immediately." Didn't do it and don't intend to unless there's a better prospect of definite payment. To [George] Roberts — or rather the Constell-a-t-i-o-n Office.

Got proof, went to Pic and Post Offices, rode back per omnibus. Writing in the afternoon and evening. [Jesse] Haney is in Boston — went there with Mort Thomson yester-evening, both, I think on business, though doubtless some desire of distraction of scene influenced the former. What cant is that which asserts the cruelty of men, one towards another, during affliction! There is not a fellow who knows Thomson but does not feel a thousand fold kinder to him, now. Whatever our errors, our vices may be, there's a good deal of Love in us, after all. And if we can love one another won't Our Father in Heaven love and be merciful to us. I hope so.

29. Wednesday. Drawing till 12 1/2, then down town. A cold dull lowering day promising snow which began to fall fast in an hour or so. To Constellation, Pic, and Century Office — Roberts too busy to talk about "arrangements" on the former. Returned up-town with Haney, who appeared at the breakfast table this morning. He saw both the Wauds [Alfred and William] in Boston. Alf was locked in his office, didn't appear till Haney and Mort were retreating,
