[Boston—Thursday, 4 May 1876]

May 4th Final meeting of the Womens Mutual Benefit Association. Mrs Ballou having died it seemed best to wind up the business, none of the vice-presidents feeling themselves able to devote the necessary time to that work. With the assistance of Miss Alger I arranged baskets of flowers for Miss Doria and Miss Welch who were to sing for our poor people, Mendelssohn’s opera in the evening. Then I arranged a supper for the dramatic company afterward. The operetta was beautifully sung and acted, a real success in every way. I think too we shall have money for our work from it.
