Dear Miss Yonge
We shall be very glad indeed to see the Deeds become words in print. I meant to have no illustrations except the vignette which I have had in my other Golden Treasury books. This has been ‘exercising’ me a good deal of late. I cannot hit on either the sort of subject or the man to do it. I would be most grateful to you for a hint. I am inclined to send the first few sheets to Mr Holman Hunt & say ‘Do what you can’. He works slowly and with difficulty & is not always willing to undertake these things, but if he would it would be pleasant to have anything from him. If he does not do it we might get Millais [illegible] things & rapidly enough always with great ability of course but I would not be so clear as to their – what shall I say . Golden-ness is [illegible]
