Dear Mr Macmillan
I am obliged for the cheque which came safely this morning.

My dear Mother died on Monday, the end coming much more suddenly than we had expected – and very mercifully to close the long course of feebleness of mind and body.

I do not think that I shall be able to do much steady work for some weeks to come, but after that, I hope to return to regular ways

Yours truly
C M Yonge
