Description

Greenwood informs Fields that she will not be able to see him in Boston as they are leaving for Albany. She asks him to advertise the book until she returns and prefers the title "Haps and Mishaps of a year in Europe" for this purpose.
Fields should place an advertisement for the book in the Transcript for three alternate days. Greenwood stresses the importance of this endeavor. When the notice appears he should send Anna Phillips 12 copies by express.
Greenwood will not be married until late in the fall.
