[Manchester—Thursday, 9 September 1875]

Thursday—midsummer warmth—cold better—going about somewhat as usual—head still thick and unable to work, but everything looks brighter.

Much better towards afternoon. Company came at 3 P.M. Mr. & Miss Burlingame. Mrs George Howe, Mr. & Mrs Gilbert, Miss Howes, Susan Hale and Mrs James Lodge. Miss Sohier called.

Mr. Gilbert read from “Much ado about Nothing” from Henry VIII, Alexander’s Feast and Falstaff. Admirable reading it was too—simple and delightful. He was in the best of moods for it.

Susie, M.G. Lodge & I sat very late talking over our winter plans.
