Description

To ANNIE ADAMS FIELDS
Wheeling, 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 prefer reading it all before he accepts or commences to publish it?   I write to you, knowing that your time is not as occupied as his, most probably— and presuming on your courtesy to answer tiresome business letters—

Very respectfully
R. B. Harding—


[1]Probably what would become “A Story of To-Day,” Atlantic Monthly (Oct. 1861-Mar. 1862); published in book form as Margret Howth: A Story of To-Day (1862).
