Has not found the meditation in Sleepy Hollow; has copied parts from the journal of the first year of their marriage, interesting because of [Henry David] Thoreau. Speaks of the other chapter of the Dolliver Romance. Refers to "Passages from Hawthorne's Note-Books, No. IX" (In the Atlantic Monthly, Sep. 1866).
