[page 1] Dear Mr. Fields.
I wrote you some two [?] days ago that you might expect me by the "Niagara". I took passage by that steamer but I have since by taking cold, been so ill with an attack of the bronchitis, that Doctor Laurie has forbidden my going
I hope to be well enough to sail by the "America" Aug 6th. anyhow, will let you know. We

[page 2] have not yet seen Mr. Ticknor. and Hawthorne but hope to soon. I have a note from Mr. Ticknor, and have had the reading of one from you to Mr. Bennoch. in which you did not make mention of me. Thank you!— Will you be so kind as to forward the enclosed notes, at once. I am very sorry to be obliged to disappoint my friends but I cannot help myself. I am not at all able to undertake the voyage

[page 3] But dont [sic] let any one be anxious about me. I am in good hands and shall get along finely. no doubt. Mrs Bennoch would write today lest that she has a headache. She sends much love
I write a mere note because I am not able to write a letter and I am in haste to save the mail
Kind regards to all our friends.
as ever yours
Grace
