Title: Thomas Butler Gunn Diaries: Volume 3, page 32, November 26-29, 1851

Description: Describes a situation in which Gleason was beaten.


Charley Brown [words crossed out] [words crossed out], you were quite right in one of your [word crossed out] letters, when you said “She [Lotty Kidder] never had a mother [Rebecca Kidder].

27. Thursday. Being Thanksgiving day, to the Office. There awhile talking with Holbrook, Donovan &c; then to Post Office, then to Wall Street, calling on J B Holmes. Found him at work as usual. And he told how old Gleason had after getting the young wife of an individual intoxicated, been discovered in questionable situation by the husband, licked within an inch of his life by the man, and others, and now lay with damaged sconce, in danger. / Called at Chamber Street. Evening [William] Barth came, in my cold room till 11, drinking ale and fumigating, I writing “Ike Chivvles.”

28. Friday. A dismally-passed day, in truth. Drawing the Reveille subject, and writing Ike, either in the gloomy, dark sitting room below, or in my deathly-cold room above; driving rain without, and illness within. Diarrhea and despondency, sore-throat &c. Insomuch in the evening I was fain to get into bed, and write there.

29. Saturday. Down town with block for Reveille and “copy” for printers. Got $3 from Barton, [word crossed out] Wrote awhile in the Office, then back to [48] Franklin, Holbrook walking part of the way with me. Afternoon, drawing. Barth
