[Manchester—Wednesday, 16 August 1876]

Wednesday. Passed the morning with Mr. Clarke. He left us at 2 P.M.

His memory has been a fountain of pleasure to us. He seems to have forgotten nothing from the Odes of Horace which he learned as a boy of ten years to the poem of Whittier which he read yesterday. Jamie says he likes him better as a household guest than any man he knows. We were most sorry to part with him.
