Dear Mr Craik

Many thanks for your letter, I send the agreement, with which I am quite satisfied. I also send by train four nos of the Christian Remembrancer containing four papers

Folk Lore & Old Stories

Lord Seaton & his Regiment

The La Ferronays family

Eugenie de Guérin

There are also- only I have not disinterred them Miss Sewell’s Principles of Education and the Life of Bishop Mackenzie but these will be enough for you to see whether they are available.1

The Ghosts as you see are in Folk Lore. If advisable I could expand that a good deal – and make a little volume of it.

I have not signed the agreement as I should like you to fill it up first lest I should do it incorrectly

Yours truly
C M Yonge

1CMY wanted Macmillans to publish a volume of her unpublished non-fiction articles, but the idea never came to anything.
