[page 1] Dear Mr. Fields.
Since yours of Feb 28th reached me I have made a regular +++ of all my goods and chattels to find Dr. Laurie's prescription that I might send the genuine +++ to you But I find that I must have left it at New Brighton. But I remember it perfectly well. and having the medicine by me. in a separate package cannot be

[page 1] mistaken. They are Cocculus [?]. / +++ / +++. The Cocculus [?] you must take. four or five globules at a time as often as you feel nausea. The +++ when actual vomiting takes place. the +++ when you are the most wretchedly ill. I only took once of the +++. not once of the Arsen.- We have seen and heard nothing of Mr. Ticknor. What has become of him?

[page 2] You must find "Little Pil's" poetry. We can't and wont [sic] do without it. I have just received a charming note from Dickens. saying that he and his are awaiting "Haps and Mishaps" with most favorable feelings of friendly interest. I dont [sic] hear from the Bennoch's often, of late. and I am feeling a little troubled about it.— Please give my most affectionate sympathy to dear Miss Mitford. I hope

[page 3] my book will reach her and will please her. It seems that Parker "wont [sic] stay +++". Give it to him again. Love to the Whipples
Yours as ever cordially and truly
Grace
