Dear Miss Yonge

I think I have got a most charming gem of Alexander, whom I was contemplating as one vignette. I am afraid he was rather an unworthy in some ways. But who is always worthy.1 This face is so beautiful. It is engraved by Worship[?] from the Besborough [sic] Collection. You shall see it.

Very faithfully yours
A. Macmillan
