I am sorry you had so much trouble about the Trial. I was only waiting to send it to you till I heard whether you thought it worth while to look at it so long before hand. I now send it by this post. There are six more chapters not yet in type of about the length of these, but I hope that the last of them will appear on the 1st of March or April, and I should imagine that the whole had better appear as soon as possible afterwards.

I have arranged that the Clever Woman of the Family should first come out in the Churchman’s Family magazine, to be completed there by December 1864,2 but I retain the copy right, and shall hope to bring out the book together in December, having stipulated with Messrs Hogg3 that the choice of a publisher for it shall then be in my hands.

I have not yet had an answer from Messrs Longman with regard to my other works

Your obt servt
