Title: Thomas Butler Gunn Diaries: Volume 5, page 162, February 27-28, 1853

Description: Mentions that Lockington has ''bolted'' from the city in debt.


27. Sunday. Davis & another called; then [Alfred] Waud & [Joseph H.] Brightly. All left. I drawing. Sunny, lovely day outside. Dined at Shades, returned, [Charles] Welden came, and left. I drew till 4, then to Fulton Street, couldn't effect entrance to the woodpecking mansion, and so continued my walk. To the Battery, and by the East River, finding my way into Chatham Street by 6. Called at [Frank] Royals, supped with them, & tarried till near 9, then to Mrs [Rebecca] Kidder's. All out save [Moses] Morse and one Paxton, with whom I bore converse till 11. Both had travelled hither & thither extensively. Talk of life in South America, Canada &c. Mrs K and a brother returned from Brooklyn. Left at midnight.

28. Monday. Piteously wet day. Down town to the Picayune Office. Met [Fayette] Robinson. With him at a certain first floor office in Nassau Street, talk & whiskey punch for half an hour. To room again and drawing. Dined at "Shades." Drawing again. Down town, Wells & Webb & Lantern & Picayune Offices — then returned.

Bye the bye, that small Scoundrel Lockington, hath, after the perpetration of some bolder rascalities than was wont to lie in his usual piddling sphere, incontinently bolted, — they say to Australia. In debt of course.
