Description

Greenwood still has not received the proof and Fields also has not answered her question regarding the address on the subscriber list. He should ask Mr. Ticknor if he can acquire some storybooks for her. 
Greenwood compliments Fields' poem which she informs him will appear in the December number. She is impressed by Miss Ipevat's article which appeared in the November number and asks Fields for his opinion.

[page 1] Dear Mr. Fields.
I should have written to you some days ago to acknowledge your poem, but that I have been looking for a package of proof by every post. Why does it not come? Did you receive the two packages I sent. one by express, one by mail?— Please ask Mr. Ticknor to let me know if he can get

[page 2] the little +++ storybooks for me? your poem is very sweet and we thank you for it. but really we cannot afford to lose the compliment and advantage of your home. We have presumed to give it, and the date of the writing and the poem will occupy the place d'+++ in our December No.

[page 3] By the way, how do you like the October November No?— Isn't Miss Ipevat's [?] article singularly beautiful. Ah Fields that girl has great genius. I wish you could see a few of the best of her things. you never have answered that question about the address of Miss Clarke. one of the subscribers
