Title: Thomas Butler Gunn Diaries: Volume 4, page 152, June 28-29, 1852

Description: Comments on Lotty Kidder's marriage to John Whytal.

Transcription:

where they live at now; — acknowledging her [Charlotte Kidder’s] innocence attributing his [John Whytal’s] suspicions to &c &c — bosh, and willing they should yoke again. She gave him a savage No, and he’s on his way to California. And that’s all of it. I think there may worse come of the matter. An equivocal position, wild, wilful temper — she’s only the devil pride to keep the Seven Devils from her. A sad prospect to Lotty Kidder! [words crossed out] Mutual confusion, exasperation, passion — what not?

29. Tuesday. Drawing on wood for the Lantern Afternoon three Reveille drawings on wood — hard at work. Took two Lantern drawings to get cut — gave one Dickenson another [Alfred] Swinton. Evening called at Dunsiers, finding Miss Tamison all alone, dress making. Battered her for an hour or two, then left & to New York.
