[Boston—Monday, 19 October 1863]

Monday. J.T.F. went to see Mrs Theodore Parker. He was impressed as all must be with the pathos of her all enduring all suffering, all silent, life. Mr Lyman, Mr Parker’s executor, has some spite against T. & F. and is putting Mr Weiss’s life of Theodore Parker into the Harper’s hands. This troubles Mrs Parker. “I will go to N.Y. with you. I am ready at any moment” was her quiet remark to Mr Fields. “I do not wish Mr Lyman to do this. It is a beautiful book and should not fall into wicked hands.”
