[page 1] Dear Mr. Fields. [addressed to Fields in Boston]
I send you the preface for the little book.— Enclosed you will find a letter. which you will please read and reply to at once. I should say that the man's plan is a good one, and that if he can give you good references, you had better let them have as many of all the publications as he wishes. Nowhere have I so many friend [sic] as in the West. and yet they all complain of not being able to procure "Greenwood Leaves". Except in the large cities, where a few copies [inserted] are offered for sale. I will write a line to Mr. White who is a stranger to me. but you know I can tell him nothing deffinite [sic].

[page 2] I am sorry that I troubled you about the California paper. but I was so dreadfully anxious. There are some typographical errors in the poems. very provoking. letters left out. I am very sorry [?], but I read proof with the greatest care. Hope that a second and revised edition will be called for speedily! My precious love to Mr. Ticknor. support him while you deliver my message.
As ever yours.
Grace
