[Manchester—Thursday, 27 July 1876]

Thursday. Fair, damp, and cool. Mrs Alger gave me a piece of fine embroidery yesterday. She is to be at Rye with the Blaines, Robeson etc. Mary Lodge is to go there also. I believe I should fly to the other side of the earth. Mrs Howe was very piquant in her speech about it—said Mary was going to Rye to stay with some distinguished people from Washington, very agreeable if not very honest!!!! This with a twinkle all her own.
