Title: Thomas Butler Gunn Diaries: Volume 4, page 35, February 15, 1852

Description: Describes a visit to Rebecca Kidder's residence and the people there.

Transcription:

where I found a roomful of people [at 368 Broadway]. Two of the Browns, Albert and Alfred, Cooper [Arthur] Mason and others. Lotty [Kidder] was there, laying on the sofa beside Cooper. They all went soon, sat and talked awhile with Lotty and her mother, principally about her appearance. Put Lotty out of temper by telling her of the glorious ambition to achieve newsboy plaudits. [words crossed out] Says she was horribly nervous at first coming on.) Mason hath news of a fathers death. They parted ungently, too. Talks of returning, taking Jane Gibson as a wife. She deserves a better mate than the little roue.
