Lotty [Kidder] going to England.

to sympathize with the occasion for his [George Arnold’s] coming, which [N.G.] Shepherd attributes to the ex-mistress of the ingenious Frank Wood. We went out to the Optimus for ale afterwards. When I returned and for some time subsequent, the reflection of a fire appeared Bowery-wards, and the shouts and distant noises incidental to the Presidential election were heard; all folks within and without astir about it.

7. Wednesday. New York’s conscience in its breeches pocket as usual, but the country honester — a Republican president [Abraham Lincoln] elected. [George] Boweryem met Brentnall and Hill the other day, the second carrying a heavy package just passed through the custom house, presumably of jewelry or watches. The two told Boweryem that Lotty was going to sail for England in a week’s time, to rejoin [Arthur] Granville, and that they meditated a pleasure trip to South America. They have given up the store they had taken in an expensive part of Broadway; when Boweryem has visited it he always found it closed. He opines, reasonably enough, that these young fellows are robbing, the one his father, the other his employer. They came hither to represent the firm, a respectable one, Brentnall having been apprentice to Hill’s father. What an enviable experience Granville’s English relatives will have of Lotty! go where she will she’ll do
