Description

Greenwood asks Fields about his insights on Mr. Tufts as he has not done so yet. She does not want to transfer such an extensive right for The Little Pilgrim to Mr. Tufts if he is not known as reliable.
Greenwood also stresses that she will not feel slighted if Whipple, Longfellow, Lowell, and Parker do not decide to "take the Little Pilgrim in."

[page 1] Dear Mr. Fields.
some three weeks ago I wrote to you for information in regard to a Mr. Tufts [sic] Bookseller and Periodical agent. 91 Washington St Boston. who applied for the agency of the L.P. [Little Pilgrim] for the whole of Massachusetts. We do not want to make over so extensive a right to him unless he is known of a reliable and energetic

[page 2] man. Do make some inquiries at once and let us know. We have heard nothing from you on the subject.
In haste but as ever faithfully yours
Grace
I shall feel not a little slighted if Whipple Longfellow Lowell and Parker do not "take the Little Pilgrim in."
