Title: Thomas Butler Gunn Diaries: Volume 8, page 105, November 18-24, 1856

Description: Regarding a letter Mr. Falk sent to Charles Jewell about Alf Waud.


[admin]istered periodically. Down town calls. Back. Drawing in the afternoon. To Jewell's and the Edwardses at night.

19. Wednesday. Down town to Times and Tribune Offices &c. Evening to [Frank] Bellew's.

20. Thursday. Being "Thanksgiving" day. Abroad in Washington Square. The day an indescribably lovely one, the air so deliciously cool and fresh on your cheek that it seemed instinct with health and kindness; the bubbling of the fountain, clear blue sky seen through the bare branches of the trees, all combining to make one in love with life. After dinner, to [James] Parton's, having received an invitation per [William] Levison. Stayed till past 10.

21. Friday. Drawing &c. Down town in the morning.

22. Saturday. Down town calls. Met Colonel [Hugh] Forbes, who in conjunction with another, has just started a weekly paper "The European." Returned up town with [George] Arnold, having called on him at the "Mercury" office. Called at Mrs [Celina] Jewell's this morning. Alf Waud has written to them, of his having received a letter from old Falk [Charles] Jewell touching Falk. The latter in his letter to the former did mention the visit of Selina [Jewell] and her mother to the Catskills. Hence old Jewell must know of their cognizance of Alf &c.

Drawing. Visited Edwards at night.

23. Sunday. In doors till night.

24. Monday. Down town to Wells & Webb’s,
