Title: Thomas Butler Gunn Diaries: Volume 11, page 104, August 30-31, 1859

Description: Regarding Frank Cahill's feelings for Matty Edwards.

Wrote to Dick Bolton and other matters.

Found [Dr. Edward] Dixon there, talking to Gun & Cahill. Left, to Century Office, Carrington’s (leaving M. S. at both,) to Post Office, (where I again met Dixon) then to Sunday Courier Office.
