[Boston—Saturday, 15 February 1868]

Feb. 15. The days slip from under our hands, every moment heavy with significance and yet how light sometimes is our hold upon them.

We are full of plans for the next two or three weeks connected with Mr Dickens to whom we shall gladly surrender all our other interests until we part in April.

Reading Carlyle’s French Revolution & Tale of Two Cities—they belong together & fill my vision utterly.

Sitting for my portrait to Lissie Bartol & Lissie Greene. The girls come on well with their work. How often I think of my poor Lissie & her powers of striving and slight performance, yet I hope all things from her growth in Paris.
