To JAMES T. FIELDS? May 14, [1864], Philadelphia

My dear friend

Many thanks for your trouble in returning the ms.[1] I know it was not usual to ask, but I had no copy & wanted it. I forgot the stamps too—before—How hot it is—I am writing you a short story of the same[?] laid here, and I’m afraid it will be feverish in spite of me—The thermometer was at 90 one day this week—Kindest regards from me & mine to you and yours—

R. H. Davis


1. Probably the ms of RHD’s review of Robert Browning’s book.
