[Boston—Thursday, 7 January 1864]

Thursday. Mrs Stowe came to dinner also Mr Rowse, Otto Dresel and his wife, Mrs Lehmann & Mrs Loring. We had a delightful afternoon and evening.

Mrs Stowe told stories of her western experiences among the negroes. How they made a “regular roost” of her kitchen and how Mina presided there who used to say when she gave her any orders “I hear ye” and then would go to do just what she pleased. We laughed ourselves lame over her queer pictures.

In the afternoon we talked of “Spiritualism”. In which we both believe.
