[Manchester—Tuesday, 3 August 1875]

Tuesday August 3. A fine N.E. storm. Ocean tempestuous. Mrs Leonowens our only guest. Yesterday we walked out together after reading German poems. In the evening dear “J.” read us his Cowper lecture. Very beautiful— Just as we were seated, dear J and I, for an hour of quiet reading, a carryall arrived while the rain was pouring Sheets of water from the piazza, and Mr. & Mrs Lang jumped out. They were not much wet and as he is going to Europe they decided to seize their only time to come.

Read Goethe’s poems with Mrs. L. in the afternoon. J. read his “Hood” & songs from Queen Mary. Finished Macready’s Life.
