To JAMES T. FIELDS and ANNIE ADAMS FIELDS August 4, [1862], Wheeling I don’t know which to write to. I cannot separate you, and I do want a good talk to both of you this tropical morning. Such a long time since we looked out on the bay from that…

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 January 26, [1863], Wheeling[1] I know you will forgive me, dear Annie for not writing sooner. I’ve abandoned mail—to be fitted and inspected and looked at by women with mouths full of pins[2] and me eye shut, and I’m…

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 May 6, [1863], Philadelphia My dear Annie I hoped to have a letter from you for the last three or four days. I hardly know why unless because I haven’t been very well and after Mr Davis went down street in the morning have…

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 June 3, [1863], Philadelphia Dear Annie I waited to finish this before writing so that I could send it in—I hope Mr Fields will like it. But I’m afraid it is too long for one number and it would not be condensed so I leave…

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…
