[Manchester—Tuesday, 24 July 1877]

July 24. The Aldrich’s came. He was full of droll sayings and fancies—meant to have a stone house at once and live all the year round at the sea-side. J. lent him a queer pair of slippers with an ornament of some awkward pattern on each toe. He said he had the shoemaker in an Eastlake fain to match the Eastlake pattern on the slippers.

We are very happy. J. is pretty well—that is enough for me.

“He shall not be afraid of evil tidings. His heart is fixed, trusting in the Lord.”
