Title: Thomas Butler Gunn Diaries: Volume 4, page 142, June 20, 1852

Description: Mentions having a drink with Thomas Picton.

Transcription:

ted me. He [William Barth] was off to visit a certain feminine of his acquaintance, designing excursion and sentimentalizing for the day, and had arrayed himself in immaculately white breeks &c for the same. To the Rainbow together, (where we saw Lockington,) and [word crossed out] I breakfasted and Barth lunched. There an hour or so, Barth quitting; and I after some hours newspaper reading turned out too. Met [Thomas] Picton and five or six listeners to him. He’s heard about his “Sachem” picture I put in the Lantern, and was exhilarated about it. Must drink of course. Left him, to my room for an hour, then down Broadway to the Battery. Blazing, sunny day. Took boat for Staten Island, it being crowded to extremity, of course. Arrived at the Second landing place, disembarked and to the “Pagoda.”
