Description

To JAMES T. FIELDS
April 28, [1862], Wheeling

Mr Fields

Since I find this last story[1] is so long in making itself pen and ink, I feel worried at my indebtedness to you. Will you ask your book-keeper to send me word if the sale of ‘Margret’[2] has nearly put me out of debt—(for the $200 you remember) or how we stand? What is the percentage you spoke of? I am sorry to write about so intolerable a thing to ears polite as money but I expected to send you Mss for that sum long since and am worried that I have not done so— If I knew just how matters stood I would be easier in my mind.

Yours truly
R.B.H.

Apropos to nothing. Would it be much trouble for you to tell me which are Mr. Wasson’s[3] articles that have been published in the Atlantic, poems especially. He will be quite willing I know as he told me those in other periodicals.


Notes

1. “David Gaunt.”

2. Margret Howth.

3. David Atwood Watson (1823-1887), minister, author, poet, abolitionist, and Transcendentalist.
