My dear Miss Yonge
I have arranged with Mr Armitage a painter of considerable reputation particularly for pictures of Sacred & Christian subjects to draw us three designs for your The Pupils of St John. As I hope we may be able to make our start in January, it will be needful to be getting on with both the drawing and the engraving. Could you give Mr Armitage any hints that would enable him to make his sketches.

Also, when you have any done I should be glad to make a start, as I wish to materially consider all questions of type, paper, binding and the like, which I can best do when I have a bit of the actual material to work with.

I hope your health is improving with the weather which today is charming, though Bedford Street is surrounded by vegetation in a mainly cookable state, yet our sky is beautiful & cheerful. Henrietta Street lying longways to you may open up a large expanse of the Blue.

Yours very faithfully
A. Macmillan
