[Boston—Saturday, 11 March 1876]

Saturday March 11. Enjoyed several interesting visits and in the evening stopped an hour at Mrs Lodge’s. She lent me Amperè published letters now just edited. I looked them over after my return and decided not to read them. I find enough of the Amperès in Sainte Beuve and although these letters are doubtless of some sentimental interest, I am at present too much absorbed in other things. Old Mr. Horne has just sent me his best poem and I am gathering and reading his other books. Such a critique as his on Dickens will never be surpassed.
