Abstract:

Begging Severn to "take a real vacation now [her] Husband has come," hoping she is "convinced that unless he is with [her] she cannot bear the strain." Noting that she has never hear Mr. N "spoken of at all a brilliant man." Describing King's Chapel in Boston, referencing the great loss of life in the American Civil War, and noting that she would "have given every cent ... to have the war happiliy ended," and that "North and South are dear brothers again now, and the Southerners are thankful to be clear of the crime and curse of slavery." Also referencing Severn's grief about "Rosie" (Rose La Touche?), noting that "her physical condition must in any case have ended in insanity," and that her mother is a "selfish worldly managing woman." Mentioning that "K.O.'s [Kathleen Olander's] proceedings would be laughable if she had not done him so much harm." Mentioning a visit from Sig. Allessandri and his wife, who "was well, of course [Swett] means, suitably dressed."
