Title: Thomas Butler Gunn Diaries: Volume 1, page 172, September 28-30, 1850

Description: Mentions his work and attending church.


28. Saturday. [168] Duane Street all the morning. Mr [Joseph] Richardson removing therefrom. Afternoon [Dillon] Mapother called and with him joined Mr [Henry] Hart & [Norton] Butler at the pier on the end of the street where accident and loss of life had just attended the “Pacific” — then to Duane Street and perspective. Evening in doors with [Charles] Brown.

29. Monday. With Brown to the Church he attends, on one of the avenues. Little Early English edifice, stained glass at the ends, open woodwork roof and partly Puseyitish ceremonies. Sermon ordinary enough. After a long walk returned, a pleasant fresh, sunny, cold day. Fred and Edward [Greatbatch] called with a letter from Mary Bennett at Chacombe. O happy Chacombe May God bless the kind hearts there! Joe [Greatbatch] called in the evening; and together we went to Duane Street. After half an hour out with Mr Hart and Richardson [Frank] Royal. Leaving the latter at the Chapel, we three strolled up the length of Broadway — chilly enow. Winters breath perceptibly. Afterwards at the Shade for an hour or so.

30. Monday. To Duane Street by 8, drawing. Left at 11, and to Nassau Street. A few unsuccessful calls, at the Post Office, then returned at 1 to [177] Canal. Evening being requested thereto by Brown, with him to the Office, where in company with [Warren] Butler we remained until past 11, arranging a frame of specimens of printing and engraving for exhibition at Castle Garden.
