[Boston—Thursday, 2 March 1876]

Thursday March 2. The ground is covered with snow and the weather more wintry than anything we have had. My days are still crowded. I think if women could be dressed by telegraph all would go well with us, but it does require, even if one does not go to balls, a great deal of outlook to keep tastefully and appropriately clothed.

Thursday the last day of Feby leap year I passed at Chardon St. giving out work to the poor and paying them. Lucy Derby & Miss Cushman dined here and dear J., returning from Miss Porter’s school where he had been lecturing at midnight. I sat up to greet him & was tired enough the next morning.

Thursday morning. Rose at 7 o’clock and have written busily up to breakfast time, but how short the spaces seem in which to accomplish anything.
