Title: Thomas Butler Gunn Diaries: Volume 4, page 32, February 12, 1852

Description: Mentions a discussion with Joseph Richardson about Richardson's recent visit to Niagara.

Transcription:

called at his [Joseph Richardson’s] place over Gurneys, in Broadway. There I found him, in company with the little dog, at work on an oil picture of Niagara, during Winter. The room, (or rather two, being at angles one with the other was crowded with old pictures, frames, prints and the light, all jumbled together, by the stove, out on the open floor was a heap of ashes, partly covering it up. Talked for a couple of hours with him about the Niagara trip. He had left them at Buffalo, thence intending to proceed to Cleveland. They had looked for me to join them Left, called at the office whereat [Joe] Scoville, whilome Editor of the Picayune, intendeth to start a “Pick” on his own hook, there saw him got blocks. In doors rest of the day I think, partly reading.
