Dear Sir
I beg to acknowledge with many thanks the receipt of your draft for £200.

I also thank you for your letter of this morning, and your advice in the American transaction. I will write to Messrs Appleton as stringently as I can as soon as I can say that I have seen the Review.1 I am much obliged to you for mentioning, it, and shall be glad if you will be kind enough to order the number for me, and to add it to my account.

We were much amused with the paper on Servian proverbs in Frasers Magazine of this month.2

with thanks
yours truly
C M Yonge
