Letter from Grace Greenwood to James Fields, Jan 19, 1850
Greenwood states that she would not publish a new volume in the spring if there is no demand for a second edition of Greenwood Leaves. She is assured that the book would sell in the West if supplied. However, many people who would like to purchase it are unable to procure a copy.

[page 1] Dear Mr. Fields.
I received yours of the 10th, a day or two since. I wrote you on my return from Philadelphia, but you seem not to have received my note. I am looking for answer every post. I will send the corrected copy of "Greenwood Leaves" today, or tomorrow. If there's a doubt of a second ed. of the "G. L." being called for, as you imply, I cannot for a moment think of getting out a new volume in the spring. It were best not to bore the public. not to surfeit it on greens. The "G. L." would sell in the West, could it be supplied. at least so I am assured. Many who would purchase are unable to procure copies.
