Dear Miss Yonge

Mr Sutcliffe is a very old friend of ours. I must write him on the subject of plain hand. He[,] the head of an Educational department[,] ought to know better.1

I have sent you four copies of Golden Deeds through Nutt & Wells. I suppose you can get them thence.

My sister threatens you with a letter.1 But we wanted to see the first chapter in type first. The printer is doing this.

Yours ever truly
A. Macmillan

1CMY had misread Sutcliffe's name as Ratcliffe because of his poor handwriting.
2It seems that Macmillan’s sister-in-law, Frances Eliza Macmillan, was going to take a hand in the editing of 'Bethlehem'. She had suggested the Golden Deeds project, and perhaps 'Bethlehem' was also her idea.
