[Boston—Tuesday, 20 October 1868]

Oct. 20. Last night Mr Emerson gave his second lecture. It was full of touches of light which dropped from him to us, his listeners, and made us burn as with a kind of sudden inspiration of truth. He was beautiful both to hear & see. He spoke of Poetry and Criticism.
