[Manchester—Thursday, 29 July 1875]

29. Glorious dawn. Mr. Monti came at noon. He passed the day before with Longfellow; left him well once more. Mr. Procter, wife & daughter called & Miss Sohier—also in the morning just as I had sat down at my desk came Mrs Wadsworth and Miss Goodwin from Beverly.

Monti gave us an amusing anecdote (indeed many!) of Steffanone while in Boston drinking a pot of beer while in apparent distress under her long hair in Lucia.
