[Boston—Sunday, 21 June 1874]

Sunday warm and beautiful but we neither attended church nor went out of the house until late in the afternoon. Florence Holland & her friend Miss Kennedy came to see books, pictures &c and remained 3 hours and a half! Jamie was glad to make them happy and thought the time by no means thrown away. I was so glad to have a few moments which could not well be interrupted for reading that I remained at home to enjoy the rest which Sunday brings to a householder who loves a book. In the afternoon dear J. & I sauntered forth together to enjoy the people in the public garden and the lovely grounds. Money if not taste is expended liberally to plant the place and keep it in order, the result is a glorious display of flowers, shrubs and vines.
