Description

To JAMES T. FIELDS
December 19, [1861], Wheeling

Mr. Fields

I did not keep the story for alteration, but sent it to the mail on the day I promised. I am sorry if it is lost as I made no copy. I left it to a friend to direct and probably he omitted the number and street or addressed it to the firm instead of you. The name of it was John Lamar.[1]

Not hearing from you about the “Continental” I declined writing for it thinking that was what you would advise.[2] Won’t you write immediately & tell me if you have yet found the story?

Yours
R.B.H—


Notes

1. “John Lamar” would appear in the Atlantic Monthly in April 1862.

2. The editor of the Continental Magazine had contacted RHD about becoming a regular contributor.
