Title: Thomas Butler Gunn Diaries: Volume 4, page 173, July 19-20, 1852

Description: Comments briefly on morning walks.

Transcription:

good week’s work and down town to breakfast. I like this matin walk extremely. The morning’s breath welcomes you sweet and wooingly, the sunlight seems to laugh outright joyously, and my walk through the Park is a downright pleasure. It’s less difficult to be reconciled to City life, — more easy to not think of want & vice at such times. Return, and at work on a “Lantern” social. Finished it by 1/2 past 1 on wood, & took it down. Dined. To Lantern Office. [John] Brougham & [Thomas] Powell. Return and drawing on wood again. Evening after an hours desultory waiting for [Alfred] Waud & [Augustus] Fay, down town with them, with intention of supping at Goslings — but they had delayed so long the place was closed. So they went to the Rainbow, & I, not feeling carnivorous went to Van N’s and had some clams, then returning to my room & bed by 1/2 past 10.
