[Boston—Friday, 1 May 1868]

May 1st On the bed! Yesterday was a summer like day & I suppose the prostration of the sudden change of weather and perhaps the exhaustion consequent on excitement may have united to put me on my back. In no other way can I explain such a sudden submergence. Lucy Larcom stayed until 2 o’clk yesterday talking; afterwards I performed a shopping excursion, finished by Dresels concert, but altogether found myself finished when I returned home at night.

We are looking anxiously to see if the steamer is yet telegraphed—not this morning, at least.
