Title: Thomas Butler Gunn Diaries: Volume 4, page 62, March 18-19, 1852

Description: Mentions a visit to Dunsier's residence in Brooklyn.

Transcription:

as promised, to dine with the Dunsier’s. Purchased the first Number of [Charles] Dicken’s “Bleak House” and reading it by the way. God bless Charles Dickens! A foul day, mud and thawed snow, gutters filled with torrents, and discomfort everywhere. Arrived at Brooklyn, found Dunsier & his wife about to go to New York for an hour or twain so with my books I waited their return, and when they did, spent the remainder of the day there.

19. Friday. Writing copy for [Thomas W.] Strong’s Yankee Notions. Down town once. Saw [Alfred] Waud in at Swinton and Fay’s. Still sulky. He must digest his spleen now — seeing I, who should be most offended have in vain sought for renewal of intimacy — And he shall. Afternoon as pledged
