Louisa May Alcott

Louisa May AlcottFebruary. —Visited about, as my school did not bring enough to pay board and the assistant I was made to have, though I didn’t want her.
Went to lectures ; saw Booth at the Goulds’, —a handsome, shy man, glooming in a corner.
Very tired of this wandering life and distasteful work; but kept my word and tugged on.
Hate to visit people who only ask me to help amuse others, and often longed for a crust in a garret with freedom and a pen. I never knew before what insolent things a hostess can do, nor what false positions poverty can push one into.
