[Manchester—Tuesday, 17 August 1875]

Tuesday. We expected company yesterday who did not come. This gave us time for work and for a drive to carry a message to Mrs Lodge and call at Mrs Cabot’s who is lame. Marvellous sky and moonlight. It is said to be hot in town and muggy. Here the fogs produce constant scenes of glory on the sky; discomfort we know not.

Mrs Lodge came to help me in making out the plan for our new charity. In the afternoon drove to see Mr. & Mrs Ernest Longfellow at the Misses Curtis’s, a cottage of the most simple and convenient kind built on the grounds of their brother Mr. Greely Curtis.

Mr. Carpenter of Chicago arrived unexpectedly for tea and breakfast.
