Title: Thomas Butler Gunn Diaries: Volume 4, page 155, July 1, 1852

Description: Describes going out for ice cream with Lotty Kidder.

Transcription:

[sug]gesting that we should have the company of “Mr Dodd &” his lady-love, (telling me under her [Charlotte Kidder’s] breath that “[John] Whytal was in New York” & she would not wish to be seen out alone with any two legged masculine at night; off we set, boy Will [Kidder] in great tribulation and sorrow at not being permitted to accompany us. So for the first time I had this bright eyed little incomprehensibility hanging on my arm as we walked down the dank, dark street, into the great thoroughfare. At the corner we entered the confectioners, had Ice Creams &c — she had a “cobbler” too. A blooming little incomprehensibility, with a world of merits run into faults on her — very pleasant to look upon though, that face of hers. Back, consoling Will with some confectionary, then Lotty sang again and again — Her mother [Rebecca Kidder] came, & I left at 11.
