Dear Mr Macmillan
I am trying the abridging process upon Bishop Patteson, but I hope the latter part can wait to be reprinted till I get the corrections from the Mission itself.

I am much afraid that Lady Martin’s recollections about New Zealand, about which I wrote to you have been lost on the voyage. They were announced, and enquired after, but never appeared

I see the third volume of the Scripture Readings must stop with Daniel’s last chapter. I think I can make the 4th and last get to the end of the Acts as there is much less collateral matter to lengthen out with, and to harmonise a narrative from the Gospels is more desirable than to give every discourse. But I must begin from the return from captivity

Yours sincerely
C M Yonge
