[Boston—Wednesday, 7 February 1877]

Wednesday 7th Dickens’s birth day—wrote to G. Hogarth. Last Centennial meeting—here. Visit from Mrs L.M. Child—she was very witty and said of the Moody & Sankey Excitement, that she thought the mind was like the body, if we perspired very much we were apt to take cold. She saw two men at the corner of the street one had a tray with pictures of Moody, one had a paper called Red Hot Fun. “Moody, great preacher, ten cents” and one Red Hot Fun five cents cried the other, and there they stood trying to cry each other down to the infinite amusement of the passers-by.
