Dear Miss Yonge

There are three aspects of [illegible] Miss Bonham Carter, not [illegible] is the artist. I saw it in his studio and concluded it was his own. Of course we can only engrave one of the three. I think unquestionably the one looking to the right.1

Please tell me how you like it

Yours ever truly
A. Macmillan

1Probably portraits of Florence Nightingale that Macmillan was proposing for the title page vignette in A Book of Golden Deeds. The Bonham-Carters were Florence Nightingale’s cousins
