Title: Thomas Butler Gunn Diaries: Volume 3, page 4, October 6-8, 1851

Description: Mentions finding a new boarding house.


[Frederick] Gleason. Drew little Initials for Holbrook. Out, calls at the Traveller Office, at [John B.] Holmes &c. Returning young Hooper called, with intelligence of the removal of his uncle, wife and self to new boarding house in Franklin Street. Afternoon calls again, correcting proofs &c. Evening out to [48] Franklin Street, conversing with Mr Hooper and wife &c. Mr and Mrs Cummingham called, (folks who had the Leonard Street house till the evil dynasty of Flowers replaced it.) Saw young Hoppers place, and the propritress of the house, a Mrs [Anna M.] Leave, and agreed to come on the morrow, jointly to occupy sky parlor with young Hooper. I think there’s a conspiracy of New-York-mankind to condemn me to attics during the rest of my life.

7. Tuesday. Little initials. To the Traveller Office, and then to Holmes. Got $2.50 (able to pay Ogress [Mary] Holt now,) Back, put few things together and quitted Holts. To 48 Franklin. Dined. To Traveller Office and Holmes &c in the afternoon. Evening to Brooklyn & called at Dunsiers.

8. Wednesday. Drawing, apropos of the Bloomer costume, for the Traveller, during the morning. After dinner, to Chamber Street, to [John N.] Genins, to Traveller Office, to Holmes, & [Charles F.] Andersons — Could get no money. To Castle Garden, saw Livers. Back. Evening to Trippler Hall, there attending a Concert by a Mr Turner. Fine large building. The man had a good voice, though of no great power. It being over by ten, [words crossed out] stolled into the rooms of Mrs [Rebecca] Kidder, where finding [Arthur] Mason and Jane Gibson all alone, sitting lovingly side by side I left them, and back to Franklin.
