My dear Mr Freeman

It is a great relief to my mind, though I am very sorry to have been so stupid and to have given you so much trouble and I fear Mr Macmillan so much expense.2

I suppose I am fitter to dwell on character than sum up political history. Did you write the article about the truculent pictures in the illustrated papers, I was very glad of it3

Yours sincerely
C M Yonge

It is a wholesome moral I am sure for I believe I said if I knew anything it was France

1Black-edged paper.
2This apologetic note relates to CMY's History of France in the 'Historical Course for Schools' edited by Freeman. He had required extensive revisions.
3Not identified.
