Text

[page 1] Dear Fields.
The package of proof sent by express has not just come to hand. I shall express back the poems today. I also telegraph a new title for the book of travels which I hope will please you. I think it quite new. If it is not telegraph to me at once and I will send on another.— Please make the alterations in

[page 2] the proof I sent yesterday. "Haps and Mishaps" it seems does not make a good running title. Is not this new one better "Society and Sightseeing over the Sea A Journal of a Tour in Europe" By Grace Greenwood? In haste.
yours
Grace

[page 3] P.S. There is a question about the year of entering the poems which I do not understand. Please look to it.— I suppose you will not change the date as it is by no means a new publication.
