To JAMES T. FIELD
May 27, , Wheeling
Many thanks. If you read David, I have one request like Queen Esther. Don’t leave anything out of it in publishing. A deformity is better than a scar you know. I do hope to see you early in June, but I cannot tell exactly when, owing to the uncertainty of my escort’s movements. How good it must be to be a man when you want to travel!
With kindest regards to Mrs Fields
