Title: Thomas Butler Gunn Diaries: Volume 13, page 19, June 10-12, 1860

Description: Mentions that Frank Cahill is missing.



[Frank] Cahill missing.

She [Mary Bilton] an old maid at thirty-six; I thirty-four, sitting writing, at night, in a solitary New York attic. That bit of retrospection over, to the present again.

11. Monday. “Momus” work till 12, then to the office with it. [James] Morris came to dinner; he has been sick and doctored homeopathetically. Writing; down-town as far as Duane St. Billington called after supper. Writing and Phonography till 11.

13. Tuesday. Writing till noon, then [phonography]. In the afternoon down-town, to [Henry] Addey’s, to the “Nic-nax” and [Jesse] Haney’s Offices. [Charles] Gayler and Abrams at the former. Returning up-town, passed George Arnold, Giles and [N.G.] Shepherd in Broadway, to meet the first and last at our supper-table, where Arnold told me that Giles has got married a week or two ago, at “the Phalanx.” There was enquiry, too, about [Frank] Cahill, who hasn’t shown up at the “Nic-nax” Office since Saturday, or returned home to our boarding-house. The sailing excursion didn’t come off. Thatcher, foreman of the engravers at the “Nic-nax” Office, was in tribulation about it, this afternoon. Billington calling, after supper, I took him with me to find out the Bartons’, little Miss [Sarah] Maguire and Miss [Olive] Waite, who moved to Washington Street before the beginning of May.
