[Boston—Saturday, 13 June 1874]

Saturday. Cool and clear. Wrote at home during the morning and read in Goethe’s autobiography and poems (German) two hours. Invited Lilian Aldrich to lunch but she was deep in dust of housecleaning, poor child, getting her townhouse into order and could not leave. I saw her for a moment. Lowell’s house she has made perfect in neatness for their reception.

In the afternoon went to another meeting in behalf of the Children’s Free summer excursions; we were obliged to stay nearly two hours. I proposed an enlargement of the Committee which was accepted after some discussion. There will be six excursions.
