[Manchester—Monday, 9 August 1875]

Monday August 8 [sic]. Glorious day. Mrs Leonowens capped a marvellous day yesterday by coming in the evening from Mrs Clarke’s where she was passing the day. Taylor read German poems to us and she recited from the Sanscrit, giving exquisite translations. Dana and Bartol came in the P.M.

A white letter day indeed! Whittier sat in the evening and talked earnestly upon religious matters. His endeavor & earnestness contrasted with Taylor’s comfortable doctrines.

Mr. & Mrs James came in the afternoon.
