[page 1] Dear Mr. Fields.
I am at last able to send the material for the book of travels. I have worked as hard as I dared to for several days past and hope that the work is now pretty well prepared. If you send proof to me at Philadelphia any time after the 25th I shall be there to correct it. Direct care of the B. R. Plumly. I shall not be able to visit Boston again this fall.— If you wish proof corrected before the time I have stated you must do it yourself.— I am sorry
[page 2] that I cannot be nearer you than Philadelphia during the publication of this book. but I fear my health would be again endangered (by an encounter with) the East winds. I am sure you will hold me excused.— I am getting well as fast as could be reasonably expected. but I am still very weak and susceptible to cold. Do let me hear from you. I am so anxious to know if Mr. Ticknor has returned and how he is. Give him my love
I wrote you a few days ago and sent on the
[page 3] emended copy of the poems, by Adams Olo's [?] express. Dear Mr. Fields, could you without too much trouble to yourself, enquire of Mr. Chickering the lowest price at which he could make sell a fine-toned well-made piano in a plain case suitable for a school. A friend of mine wishes such a one this fall. Kindest regards to Mr. and Mrs. Whipple
Ever cordially and faithfully yours
