Description

Greenwood informs Fields that she sent a cake by express. It should have been posted much sooner but she has been "so excessively busy." The box, in which the cake is contained, is a rather tight fit so Fields should handle the cake carefully. Greenwood encourages Fields to invite friends over on Saturday afternoon to have a jollification.
