Dear Mr Macmillan

Old proofs of these Christmas stories have fortunately been discovered so I send them off herewith.1

I find I must ask you to be kind enough to let me have £200 on account, or else £100 now and another £100 before Christmas. There have been some unexpected calls upon me which drive me to ask this favour of you, though I am sorry to have to do so so early in the year

Yours sincerely
C M Yonge

I suppose Magnum Bonum will soon be put in hand
