Title: Thomas Butler Gunn Diaries: Volume 11, page 76, August 3-6, 1859

Description: Regarding Frank Cahill being expelled from his boarding house.

Transcription:

[Henry L.] Stephens. Jack Arnold visited Bob Gun to-night. [James] Morris and [Frank] Cahill in my room, from which the former has just retired, and where the latter is sleeping in a chair, on the other side of the table at which I write this.

4. Thursday. In doors, drawing &c all the wet, close, miserable day.

5. Friday. Continuation of yesterday until 4 P. M. when becoming so feverish and nervous with over-long imprisonment in doors, and the weather promising to clear up went down town.

6. Saturday. Down town, day a lovely one. To Century, Pic, & other offices. Drawing till late at night. This night I occupy an unshared room, the which I'm not sorry for, Cahill returning to his Amity Place boardinghouse. Yesterday his landlady visited me, wishing to know what had become of her ex-lodger, requesting him to call on her, which this morning he did, presently returning in high glee and clean linen. The woman was also his laundress and had, he says, detained his clothes for security of the owing $2, refusing to give them up on his application. I had a mind to speak to the woman when she came to me, about the inhumanity of the proceedings but as the event proved it was well I refrained. Cahill acknowledges he lied to me
