Excerpt: First Day?s Journal. I believe that I am now safe. This part of Columbia Street is not much visited by any people who ever knew me. The other end is in Grand Street. I doubt whether any of my acquaintance have vivid recollection of that end either. As for myself, I was aware of neither end nor middle till three days ago. Being in Broadway, with an infinite terror hanging on my shoulders like a cloak starting at every louder voice of man, woman, or child recoiling from every rapidly approaching stranger who looked me in the face I naturally enough wished to get away any where out of the bustle. On my left hand was Grand Street; to turn into it was the most obvious method of escaping from Broadway. So I did turn. For a block beyond Brooks?s great limbo of possible but undeveloped pantaloons Grand Street keeps a fashionable air. Thus far are whiffs of Broadway sucked into its draft; thus far you meet Broadway faces; thus far you are reminded of Broadway are not quite at ease with the idea of being out of it may at any moment be accosted by somebody you have met before on the great pave. I walked faster, therefore. Broadway began to fade out; the Bowery character become slowly dominant. I reached I crossed the Bowery. Now I began to breathe freer. I was pretty sure growing surer that I should not be recognized; and the cloak lifted from my shoulders. The terror did not leave me, but it followed quietly afar off.
