Title: Thomas Butler Gunn Diaries: Volume 5, page 235, July 3, 1853

Description: Comments on the scene at the newly-opened Taylor's.

Transcription:

issuing forth, it being Taylor’s newly opened extensive-gorgeously decorated shop. Inane faced dandies, silly women, or worse, — a mob. The thing sickened me. I thought of her child [Frederick Whytal] alone at home — she [Charlotte Kidder] at — Taylor’s.

I shall cut clear of all this business. Can do no good in it. Shall wait till Mrs K [Rebecca Kidder] repays that borrowed $20 — [words crossed out]; — and then drop the acquaintance. I hope [Moses] Morse will marry that woman, though I don’t think him ass enough for’t; ‘twould be a Retribution. There’d be hates, separations, lyings, belyings, what not. Well — I’m sorry for Lotty, but tis No Use. /

To Erfords, where I found Mr [Henry] Hart, [Alfred] Waud & acquaintance of his. There till 11, then parting midst rain and lightning, I to my room, to prepare carpet bag &c for tomorrows intended Catskill Excursion. Bed by 1.
