To JAMES T. FIELDS [late Aug. 1861?]  Mr. Fields, First, thanks for yourself.  I would like to say a good deal on “the study” but I suppose a Solomon of good taste would remind me that there is a time to keep silence. Thank you, which I do say…

To HUGH W. WILSON [November 1860], Wheeling My dear Uncle[1] Jim[2] wrote the other day that you had sprained your knee, but I had no idea that were seriously hurt until this morning when a letter from Aunt Blaine[3] tells me that you have been in…

To ANNIE ADAMS FIELDSWheeling, Va.  June 18. [1861] Mrs. Fields- I have sketched a story,[1] which (as Mr. Fields is indifferent as to length) will extend through three no’s. The first part is finished.  Shall I send it on, or would Mr. Fields…
