Title: Thomas Butler Gunn Diaries: Volume 5, page 147, January 30-31, 1853

Description: Describes a visit to Rebecca Kidder's residence.


to call on her [Charlotte Kidder], — Bayard Street. An hour brought [John] Whytal her [Charlotte Kidder’s] husband, and she went away with him. Mrs K [Rebecca Kiddet] only introduced him generally, and he stayed in the background, saying nought, till Lotty had attired herself.

I stayed an hour longer, talking nonsense to Mrs K and men boarders, then to the office. Half an hour with [Alfred] Swinton, (who I found engraving as he had been indeed, all day,) then at midnight to my cock-loft [290 Broadway] and thinking of many things, to bed.

31. Monday. To Bunnell & Price’s after breakfast. Dispute with Bunnell ending in new arrangement anent the cuts. I do drawings for the future, leaving the engraving to him. By this I lose some little, and ‘scape an infinitude of bother about getting ‘em out. Back to room & drawing till 2. [Alfred] Waud up with me. A letter from [Edward] Heylyn. Dined, down town, “Picayune” Office, Wells & Webb, Lantern, [Edwin A.] Weed’s &c Return & drawing again. Supped, and then drawing and writing.

Reply to Heylyn &c
