Dear Mr Macmillan

Thank you for the proof of the Primer, I hope to send it with additions in another week or so, as soon as I have finished what I have to do for Mr Freeman1

I am glad you told me about the printer I wish printers would always mark their proofs visibly

Yours truly
C M Yonge

1CMY was simultaneously working on two books for Macmillan called History of France, one in the Historical Primers series edited by J. R. Green, and another in the Historical Course for Schools series edited by E. A. Freeman, who was extremely critical of her work and demanded extensive revisions.
