Type written

Had been in Boston3 for a week—spent several days with Mrs. Deland4. Miss Jewett5 the only one of the group whose work she ever admired very much—even in University days read her stories in Scribners6 & Atlantic7 and admired them extravagantly. Still sees Mrs. Fields8 and Mary Jewett,9 and Miss Guiney10—"the foremost of verse writers, I think."

To be in New York most of summer—had only spent one summer here before. Mr. McClure11 abroad.
