[Boston—Sunday, 4 June 1876]

Sunday Dr. Adler came to tea with Mrs Wells & Mr. John S. Dwight. The talk turned upon Socialism and Prof. Adler gave us an admirable account of Gustav Werner of Wurt[t]emberg and of his most successful and unselfish labors. His large community has been a great blessing. “He has reclaimed the waste lands,” said Dr. Adler in the truest sense. Mr. Dwight in his turn described to us the labors of M. Boissière a French Gentleman of wealth who has devoted himself for the past seven years to a kindred work in Kansas. He has built a huge stone building which will hold 200 persons and they are to pursue some industry there.
