[page 1] Dear Mr. Fields.
I enclose my last "Era [?]" letter. though you may have seen it +++ this.– Please keep this copy for me, or return it. - I hope it will amuse you. I hope I correct the poof in an intelligible manner. I know little of these things. I hope that all the letters in the list may come in, Must I write the preface soon? I saw a good friend

[page 2] of yours the other evening. Mr. Peabody of Portsmouth and he spoke of you in such a way as to make me happy that I know you and might call you friend. I must congratulate you on possessing such a friend as he, who then [?] grew so earnest and eloquent in your praise.What days we're having! again what days for the hills! I am quite recovered from my brief, yet serious illness.

[page 3] Giles gave us the slip finily [?, sic].- He promised to accompany me to Cambridge to see the Longfellows. Now I know not what I shall do, unless I can press you into the service some time afternoon. Dont [sic] be shocked at my presumption. My kindest regards to Mr. Whipple. Did he see the little paragraph about him, in one of my late letters? But I am stealing too much of your time. Good morning.
Ever yours
G.G.
