[Manchester—Monday, 10 July 1871]

Monday. Walked in the heat, and returned with a half awakened feeling to find dear J. with headache. Read Carlyle on Goethe and meditated on the cheerful progress of his truly poetic life. A letter of thanks came from Bayard Taylor respecting my note to him thanking him for his translation of the Second Part of Faust.

The air became cool & translucent the latter part of the day and we drove till dark in the pony carriage.
