[Boston—Friday, 13 March 1868]

Friday March 13th Warm and rainy. J. went to a meeting of the Thursday Club last evening where Colonel Lyman made a very brilliant & unpremeditated attack upon a carefully prepared paper by Dr. White. Colonel Lyman is beginning to win a noble place for himself among the workers and thinkers. His efforts to preserve the fish in our rivers will cause his name to be long remembered with gratitude. I stayed at home & read “Our Mutual Friend” until I stupidly enough fell asleep overcome by the warmth of the house after the chilly work in the afternoon. But my book was a great one, very powerful. Perhaps one of his best.
