Dear Mr Macmillan
The enclosed rather puzzles me, for I thought it was settled that sheets of the Chaplet of Pearls were to be forwarded to Mr Franke as they were ready for the Magazine?

Will you kindly see if this has been done?

Please send me back Wooed and Won. I must try what I can do with it.

Are you reprinting Kingsley’s Heroes. We tried for both them and Miss Keary’s heroes of Asgard for my brother’s children, and found both are out of print.

The Literary Churchman is very favorable [sic] to the Selections, as I hear they have begun on them at a great girls’ school

Yours very truly
C.M. Yonge
