Dear Mr Macmillan
I send the two vols of Bishop Patteson by train today, having done all the abridging that I think they will bear, I believe it is about 100pp in each volume, and a good many lines besides so that with smaller type and thinner paper I think it will be reduced enough.

Since I began this has come the enquiry after the author of the Children of the Forest or the Three Knights.1 I cannot recollect anything about her, nor that the story of that title has been in the Monthly Packet

Yours sincerely
C M Yonge

11‘The Children in the Forest’, a translation from the German by C.P., had appeared in MP (November 1856), 376-384.
