objects held constantly in view. The good of all the aim of each. The discipline of labor, faith, and sacrifice is necessary. Our growth inharmony of will and in earnestness of purpose will be far more important than in numbers. One hundred and ninety women formed this Association: a year later there were three hundred. The second Congress was held in Chicago, with an attendance very respectable in numbers and character from the first, and very full in afternoon and evening. On the second day, October 16, 1874, the subject considered was Crime and Reform. The Journal says:-- Mrs. Ellen Mitchell's paper on fallen women was first-rate throughout. I spoke first after it, saying that we must carry the war into Africa and reform the men . . . The meetings of the Congress grew more and more important to her. That of 1875 found her much tossed in mind about going, on account of the Doctor's ill health. She consulted Mr. Clarke, but felt afterward that this was a mistake.
eing still absent) she spoke four times in public, on four successive days. These addresses were at the Kindergarten for the Blind ( I missed the snap which Michael's presence was wont to give; I spoke praise of him to the children, as one to be held in dear remembrance; to the visitors, as having left the public a sacred legacy in these schools, which he created with so much labor ), at Faneuil Hall, a meeting about Old Home Week, at the West Newton High School, and at Providence. On the fifth day she was at the Wintergreen Club, answering the question, What is the greatest evil of the present day? --False estimates of values, vehement striving for what hinders rather than helps our spiritual development. After this bout she was glad to rest a day or two, but in another week was ready for the Woman Suffrage Festival. I to open it, evening, Faneuil Hall. A day of rushing.

ith the high resolve and hardihood for which, but a few years before, she had been sighing: this was the woman who came to London in 1872, alone and unaided; who, standing before the Dark Tower of established Order and Precedent, might say with Childe Roland,-- Dauntless the slug horn to my lips I set, And blew. She spoke at the banquet of the Unitarian Association. The occasion was to me a memorable one. She hired the Freemasons' Tavern and preached there on five or six successive Sundays. My procedure was very simple,--a prayer, the reading of a hymn, and a discourse from a Scripture text.... The attendance was very good throughout, and I cherished the hope that I had sown some seed which would bear fruit hereafter. She was asked to address meetings in various parts of England, speaking in Birmingham, Manchester, Leeds, Bristol, Carlisle, with good acceptance. In Cambridge she talked with Professor J. R. Seeley, whom she found most sympathetic. She was everywhere we
self consecrated to the work; wherever she was asked to preach, she went as if on wings, feeling this call more sacred than any other. She preached in all parts of the country, from Maine to California, from Minnesota to Louisiana; but the pulpit in which she felt most truly at home was that of the Church of the Disciples. Mr. Clarke had first welcomed her there: his successor, Charles Gordon Ames, became in turn her valued friend and pastor. The congregation were all her friends. On Sundays they gathered round her after service, with greetings and kind words. She was ready enough to respond. Congregationing, as she called this little function, was her delight; after listening devoutly to the sermon, there was always a reaction to her gayest mood. Her spirit came to church with folded hands of prayer, but departed on dancing feet. Sometimes she reproached herself with over-friskiness; but mostly she was too wise for this, and let the sun shine when and where it would. Sh
ore to the Exposition. She called meetings in Boston, New York, Providence, Philadelphia, and Hartford, at all of which she spoke, imploring the women to bestir themselves, and, late as it was, to make an effort to get together a proper showing of women's work for the great Fair. Beside all this, she kept up through the autumn an active correspondence with the Exposition authorities at New Orleans. The Exposition was scheduled to open on the 1st of December: it did actually open on the 16th. She writes:-- A steamer had been chartered to convey thither the officers of the Exposition and their invited guests. Seated on the deck, the chief of the Woman's Department and her fellow-workers watched the arrival of the high dignitaries of the State and city, escorted by members of the military, and by two bands of music; one, the famous Mexican Band. All the craft on the river were adorned with flags and streamers. The Crescent, which gives the city its familiar designation, wa

Faithfully yours, James Russell Lowell. The Journal thus notes the occasion. My seventieth birthday. A very busy day for all of us.... My head was dressed at eleven. All my children were here, with daughter-and sons-in-law. I had many lovely gifts. The house was like a garden of costly flowers. Breakfast was at 12.30; was in very good style.

Maud, inviting Oliver Wendell Holmes to the party, had written, Mamma will be seventy years young on the 27th. Come and play with her! The Doctor in his reply said, It is better to be seventy years young than forty years old! Dr. Holmes himself was now eighty years old. It was in these days that she went with Laura to call on him, and found him in cle.

ew York. Lecture engagements, conferences, and sermons took her hither and thither, and much of the time that should have been precious was passed in trains and boats. In the last days of February, Julia was stricken with rheumatic fever, which soon developed into typhoid. The weather was direful: bitter cold and furious wind. Our mother went at once to South Boston, where arriving, found my dear child seriously but not dangerously ill. Her joy at my coming was very pathetic. On the 28th she writes:-- I cannot be sure whether it was on this day that she said to me: Mamma, don't you remember the dream you had when Flossy and I were little children, and you were in Europe? You dreamed that you saw us in a boat and that the tide was carrying us away from you. Now the dream has come true, and the tide is bearing me away from you. This saying was very sad to me; but my mind was possessed with the determination that death was not to be thought of. For a time conditions se
12, a notice of the death of William Allen Butler is pasted in the Diary. Below it she writes:-- A pleasant man. I met him at the Hazeltines' in Rome in 1898 and 1899. His poem [Nothing to wear] was claimed by one or two people. I met his father [a Cabinet Minister] at a dinner at the Bancrofts' in New York, at which ex-President Van Buren was also present, and W. M. Thackeray, who said to me across the table that Browning's How they brought the good news was a good jingle. On the 29th she spoke at a meeting of the New England Woman's Club in memory of Dr. Zakrzewska, and records her final words:-- I pray God earnestly that we women may never go back from the ground which has been gained for us by our noble pioneers and leaders. I pray that these bright stars of merit, set in our human firmament, may shine upon us and lead us to better and better love and service for God and man.

e bidding I cannot neglect. The satisfaction of having at last obeyed this interior guide is all that keeps me up, for no one, so far as I know, altogether approves of my going. Spite of these doubts and fears, the enterprise was successful. Perhaps people were glad to shut their ears for a moment to the sound of cannon and the crying of Latest news from the front! and listen to the quiet words of philosophic thought and suggestion. Side by side with work, as usual, went play. In January she records the first meeting of the new club, the Ladies' social, at the home of Mrs. Josiah Quincy. This club of clever people, familiarly known as the Brain Club, was for many years one of her great pleasures. Mrs. Quincy was its first president. It may have been at this meeting that our mother, being asked to present in a few words the nature and object of the club, addressed the company as follows: Ladies and Gentlemen; this club has been formed for the purpose of carrying on --she
