Title: Thomas Butler Gunn Diaries: Volume 4, page 157, July 3-4, 1852

Description: Mentions a call on the Dunsiers and meeting a German who also boarded at Mrs. Flowers' boarding house.

Transcription:

for Lantern Cut. Paid Davis for shirts $5. Supped at Shelleys. Walk down Broadway & at a book auction. Run down town after a machine, but no fire. Stores in mourning for Harry Clay. Met Orphens at book store.

4. Sunday. Breakfast about 11 at the Rainbow. Then a sultry walk to Brooklyn, calling on the Dunsiers, meeting by the way a certain German who had boarded with me at Flower’s, who talked with me up at the City Hall. Called at Dunsiers, he & wife there. I rather think Fagan and the chaste Tamison were in an adjoining room, but didn’t see em. Left, return, hotly, to Goslings, dined & again to my room [290 Broadway]. Evening, after supping in doors, to Beach Street. Mrs K [Rebecca Kidder], Lott [Charlotte Kidder] & others. Lotty dumpish at her mother not wishing her to accompany us in the proposed Hastings trip, tomorrow. I decidedly disappointed at the notion. Said so.
