Field description access...

I am looking to build a client a list of all fields along with their descriptions.  I can not find access to the description anywhere in Apex or any other API.  Am I missing something?  Or does it just not exist?

If you want to access the meta data of a field, use
Describe Field Result Methods

Schema.DescribeFieldResult F = Account.AccountNumber.getDescribe();

Sorry for the miss.
So far, we cannot get the field description by API.

check the idea below
Object/Field Description text available to API and APEX Describe call
