Title: Thomas Butler Gunn Diaries: Volume 14, page 21, October 3, 1860

Description: Describes witnessing a procession for Republican candidates.



At 745 [Broadway].

[oc]curred “under my nose” on Sunday night. In telling me, Sally [Edwards] cautioned me to withdraw up the passage, beyond the glass-door leading into the store, as “Anne [Edwards] would be sure to be on the watch.” Sure enough, Anne made her appearance presently, looking sharp enough. “Don’t let anybody know I told you, or I shall catch it!” was Sally’s parting caution. [Jesse] Haney was down-stairs and appeared subsequently. Went out with Jack [Edwards] and George Edwards and little Ned Nichols, to the front of the New York Hotel, and across Broadway, experiencing some difficulty in returning, in consequence of the procession being in full movement. To the house again and hither and thither, up and downstairs. On the roof, beside Matty [Edwards], for twenty minutes or so; then with her to the roof-end of the block abutting on Eigthth street, where we found Sally, looking cool and handsome, with operatic headdress or “cloud,” M conversing with Mort. Brown, his sister [Josie Brown] and Eliza [Edwards]. To us presently came Rees, from Brooklyn. Out into the street again, getting items. At the corner of Waverly Place found [James] Nagle and Tom Picton, with them for half and hour, then back to the house. It was near 11 o’clock and the procession had expended its five miles
