Dear Miss Yonge,                                                                 

I am sending [illegible] to you to

I would do nothing to explain the [illegible]. Leave it as it is. That is my present feeling. But we can see how it strikes you a little later. In the meantime you shall see a specimen page shortly.

The idea of the two characters is to me perfectly admirable, and contains lessons of charity which it was well we all [illegible]. It has the same quality that struck me so much in the Chaplet of Pearls, and proved to me that I had often felt that there may be a Church which if not Broad is  [illegible] & which is perhaps better a Church of all divisions(?) High, low broad. [illegible] making it not lie in spiritual things.

Very f’lly yours

A. Macmillan
