[Boston—Friday, 9 December 1870]

Dec. 9. I had hardly written the above words when we both, unknown to the other, fell to reading H.H. and saw in its great excellence entire “excuse for being.”

Yesterday Boylston was married from here. Wedding party at night. Mother looking “feeble”. Sarah brought in, in the arms of William. But all went off to their great satisfaction.
