[Boston—Friday, 5 May 1876]

May 5. Elizabeth Stuart Phelps came from Andover in order to hear the operetta. We talked together in the morning of the subjects which interest her most deeply, the regulation of our present life in relation to our future. She came late to breakfast, dear Jamie soon left for Hartford. Miss Alger was called away, and we lingered until it was time for me to go to a Centennial meeting at Mrs Grant’s.

Afterward I made a few calls and came home tired enough to lie down & read till dinner.

Macauley’s life is on the carpet just now and new books by Hamerton—the former is of real permanent interest and value.
