160 years ago today - Jan 17, 1853

[Hosea Stout Diary] Monday 17 Jan 1853. Strolling around the city viewing the wonderful State of society. The Stores, the groceries churches, gambling houses, Houses of ill fame, Hotels, Hawkers, brokers, Bankers Law offices and innumerable other establishments all mingled and all mixed & inter mixed with every degree of compound, as though all classes and grades of society were of one heart and mind & in full fellowship with each other and all trades, professions, misteries and occupations were equally honorable.
