[Manchester—Friday, 21 July 1876]

Friday. Beautiful morning and yet the mornings are half lost on me when I am shut up. We went to Norman’s Woe in the afternoon with the Collyers. On my return I stopped at Mrs Townes but was called for at once by Miss Loring who had brought Mr. & Mrs Brace to see us. Miss Perkins also called.

Mrs Adams’s house has left a strong impression of exquisite taste upon my mind. If I did not remember Walt Whitman’s “Beware of Grace, beware of Delicatesse” and believe in his warning too I should take it as still more satisfactory—it is indeed perfect in its arrangements.
