[Boston—Sunday, 12 November 1871]

Sunday. Mission School in the afternoon.—L’s to tea. J. had a cold so sat by the fire and reread Miss Mitford’s letters to himself which gave him wondrous great delight. Coming home early I found Charles Sumner here, who talked interestingly until eleven. I thought he seemed lonely and spoke sadly when the idea of home or of womanly women was referred to. He talked much of Longfellow as usual, he had been dining there.
