[Boston—Saturday, 26 November 1870]

Saturday night Nov. 26 ’70. A Saturday Club day. Emerson was there, looking old, (yet age never touches his real self as we all know) and afterward John Dwight and George William Curtis came to tea & pass the evening here. Curtis has a little more grey hair but appears otherwise to have lost none of his fire. Yet his life is most laborious. They talked of Nilsson whose genius they esteem highly, of Mrs Child while we recalled the old Juvenile Miscellany and as Curtis said “the portrait of Garafilia Mahala.” I had forgotten the picture, but the name & the manner was very Curtis—y.
