[Portsmouth—Wednesday, 1 July 1874]

Wednesday. Again in the parlor where Celia read Browning during the morning. It was charmingly done. Mrs Putnam and Mrs Greene questioned the manners & morals but she continued to give the various pictures strongly enough contrasted, till the day had gone. Mrs Putnam & Georgina went away after dinner. After tea, we sat with Mrs Laighton and heard the dear old lady’s laugh. She is a lover of fun & Mr. Weiss & J.T. amuse her thoroughly. She sits up in her pretty silk dress and jewels as Celia says like the fair full moon.
