To ANNIE ADAMS FIELDS [late December, 1864], Philadelphia My dear, dear Annie When I came home[1] your letter was here. It has been waiting for me for some time. It was such a happy home-coming, Annie. We brought my sister Emmy[2] with us—then I…

To ANNIE ADAMS FIELDS April 21, [1863], Philadelphia My dear Annie I could not send this notice sooner for Carrie has been very ill and I could not write of course—she is better now—able to be up— I do not agree with you about the book. You…
