Title: Thomas Butler Gunn Diaries: Volume 8, page 82, October 3, 1856

Description: Mentions an argument with Sol Eytinge and talking with A.F. Banks about his book.


he [Alfred Waud] had washed &c went round to Mrs [Celina] Jewell's. Only Miss Selina there. To Honeys tavern for Alf to get breakfast. He looks very hearty, and had come on to make sketches for [Maturin] Ballou, as well as the Catskill project. To Frankfort Street, where we met [Frank] Leslie and Hitchcock, the latter just returned from Central America, (where his comrade Baker died.) All took a drink. Alf and I to the Picayune Office, saw [William] Levison. Found [Frank] Bellew and [Jesse] Haney dining in a restaurant opposite. Anon they left and Sol Eytinge came up. He talked with Alf awhile and then had a row with me, using any amount of foul language. I told him he was an ass and a liar, and anticipated a fight, but the matter ended with talk. Meantime [A.F.] Banks came up, and began to talk with me, and little Perkins, the lithographer. Banks hopeless about "his book." Says he shall send it to some English publisher — give it away. An hour or so's delay and we parted at the Astor, Alf going over to Communipaw to sketch, Banks accompanying him, and I up town per omnibus. Drawing in the afternoon. Hayes came, intending to report for Boston, at once, but hearing of Alf deferred [words crossed out] doing it. To Mrs Jewell’s in the evening, where I found Alf. All together, Mrs J, her daughter and us in the basement. Selina's lover Johnstone coming, she left us for him. I left shortly after, Alf remaining there for the night.
