To ANNIE ADAMS FIELDS May [15?, 1863], Philadelphia[1] Dear Annie I was more glad of that first sentence in your letter than you can believe & I write to say so today—in a chance moment. Carrie[2] is sick again and a friend from Wheeling here…

To ANNIE ADAMS FIELDS August 28, [1862], Wheeling My dear Annie  Your letter did me so much good the other day. These are sad lonesome days for us here. The war is surging up close about us. O Annie if I could put into your and every true woman’s…

To ANNIE ADAMS FIELDS January 10, [1863], Wheeling Only last night dear Annie your Christmas greeting came—too late, too, for me to say to you then how glad I was you had remembered me. It was such a beautiful gift, in conception and reality, just…

To ANNIE ADAMS FIELDS February 18, [1863], Wheeling My dear Annie Only a word I have time for today—to tell you how thoughtful your fancy of giving up pleasure by a visit to you and Boston was. I would dearly love to see you both—but I cannot…

To ANNIE ADAMS FIELDS July 27, [1863], Philadelphia I have thought of you so much dear Annie since your last letter came, more perhaps than if I had written. I did not write to you—or indeed to any one—because we have had so little quiet. First…

To ANNIE ADAMS FIELDS [c. December 1863], Philadelphia Dear Annie, You don’t know how it touches me that you should sit down at odd moments to say a word to me–just because it must be said—so different that is from a set letter. I never have…

To ANNIE ADAMS FIELDS [Late December 1863], Philadelphia My dear Annie I could not answer your note in Wheeling—for every moment was occupied with my father[1] who was weaker than I thought to find him. Not dangerously ill but enough to make him…
