My dear Miss Yonge
I have given our printer orders to go on with the ‘Clever Woman’. I hope you will receive proofs at once & have a rapid supply. It will make some such work as ‘The Trial,’ as you wish.

I have corresponded with a friend of yours about ‘Events of the Month.’1 I think the idea admirable the want is a crying one. But it should be [illegible] and well carried out. I hardly see my way to the right plan.

I have several times wished there was a Don Quixote in our Series. I see you have been telling the story briefly, and you recommend the one in Unwin’s Englishman’s Library. Is it very well done? I almost wish you would do it some day. But we should not lose sight of the more important book

ever dear Miss Yonge
Yours faithfully
A. Macmillan

1It seems that CMY had suggested to the Henrietta Murray, the editor of Events of the Month that Macmillan might take it over from the Mozleys who published the last number in January 1865..
