Another Concert of the Miss Gillinghams and others for the relief of the Alexandria sufferers. I went in deshabille and was so ashamed of it, I could hardly remain. Introduced to Mr. Macready, the English actor.2


From D/CFA/5. In the morning CFA remained at home, reading Voltaire and Spenser and working on the Executive Record (D/CFA/1).


William Charles Macready (1793–1873), the English actor and theatrical manager, who was making his first visit to America.
