Miss Yonge is much obliged to Mr Bourn for sending her several reviews and critical notices of Hopes & Fears.

She would be glad to know how the sale of the work has been proceeding.

Miss Yonge would be much obliged if Mr Bourn would inform her whether Mr Parker is pretty well, and also to express to him her sincere regrets and condolence1

1His son John William Parker, Jr. (1820-1860) had died on 9 November. Bourn and the elder Parker were now running the firm.
