[Boston—Tuesday, 1 February 1870]

Tuesday. Col. W.B. Greene & his family took tea with us. He has organised a Society of Working Women. Mrs Julia Ward Howe came before them like a whirlwind the other night declaring she had been spoken of disrespectfully there, bringing her little narrow personality with a meeting occupied with business and heated with high enthousiasms. Speaking of Suffrage Mrs Greene said a vote was found in the ballot box at Worcester a few days ago (at the last election I should say) with her name inscribed in full upon it.
