Description

Greenwood has not been well of late as she has fallen ill after the sudden death of her father on the 15th. She asks Fields to send a copy of Haps and Mishaps to William Birney, the editor of The Daily Register in Philadelphia, who has published a favorable review of the book. He should also send all the remaining copies to her as soon as possible aside from those sent to England. 
Furthermore, Greenwood asks Fields whether the package for Mary Howitt was forwarded during his absence and whether the expense was charged to her. She has received a sketch from Camilla Crosland for The Little Pilgrim and is glad to report that they are now in possession of five original articles from distinguished English writers.
