My dear Mr Craik,
I am dismayed at what I never found out till the Saturday Review called my attention to it – ie that the Cameo about the conquest of Wales was left out.

Such a Cameo there was written, it is at Vol IV p. 6 of the Monthly Packet, but it must have been neglected when I was collecting the Cameos and the printing was done so very slowly that I lost the connection, and so did not miss it. I am very sorry for it, but it must go in whenever there is a new edition – or would it be possible to add it as a kind of appendix to the copies not yet bound. I suppose it would make about 8pp. The name is the Last & first Princes of Wales

Yours sincerely
C M Yonge
