[Painesville—Saturday, 30 October 1875]

Saturday morning left for home. Sunday met James E. Murdock in the cars at Springfield. It was about six o’clock A.M. but he was bound for Newton. He came in therefore with us and talked delightfully until we parted. He is an old man but as full of nerve, vigor, and ripened intellect as anyone whom I have seen. His talk of the stage, of his disgust for Macready’s book, his disgust at the manner in which Forrest treated his wife, his account of his own experiences, when he was glad to play for $35 a week, were deeply interesting. The better side of Forrest he understood and appreciated thoroughly.
