Greenwood reports that she has almost recovered from her illness.

Greenwood wonders whether Fields will advertise all his juvenile works in her columns and whether he will get out new editions of her books this fall. Furthermore, she asks Fields to send her a copy of Tanglewood Falls for Hawthorne and a copy of Mrs. Croslands' book dedicated to her.
