Copy outletter book British Library Add MSS.55387 (1) P. 209

Dear Miss Yonge .
The presentation copies will be attended to. The book however is hardly yet in the binders hands. Books like ‘long-tailed birds of Paradise’ will not light at the end.

I am glad that the Danvers name seems connected with Mr Peabody. We should send him a copy.

The 62 pages of your law[?] makes 92 of the Book of Worthies1 (I am afraid I [illegible] I like our first title best) so we would like about ms 250 pages, more or less, additional for the volume.

I think your disciples of St John should be excellent. Miss Martin will write you in a day or two.

Yours very faithfully
A. Macmillan

1The sense of this is presumably 'your large law paper'.
