My dear Miss Sewell,
I was so hurried that I could not go to Macmillan yesterday so I am writing.

I have done the notes1 – the Joyeuse Garde beats both Mary Coleridge and me, we both thought it a real castle on the Seine – and never heard of its being an Order.

Michaud’s Histoire de Croisades has almost exactly the same about Simeon & his persecutions as Milman, and I dont know where to find more – in fact I think Milman copied him

Roman must be Norman

Yours sincerely
C M Yonge

1These were the notes to the anthology of historical writing Historical Selections which they had jointly compiled.
