[New York City—Monday, 20 April 1868]

Monday April 20th that it was unjust and had been taken off.

Attended a meeting of a new “institution” just on foot, first called “Sorosis” and afterwards “Woman’s League” for the benefit and mutual support of women. It was the first official meeting, but it proved so unofficial that I was entertained and amused as well and was able on my return to make Mr. Dickens laugh until he declared if anything could make him feel better for the evening that account of the Woman’s League would.

Mrs Oakes Smith spoke well. Mrs Owen like a good motherly soul as she is—but the rest all talked together and became intensely hot and vehement.

Queen & Frozen Deep.
