Dear Mr Macmillan

I am sorry for the mistake, it was not wilful for I looked at the stamp, and found it so pale that I saw nothing but the Cl which I took for Clay.1

Will ‘By-words in action’ do for the name of this collection of stories, as all illustrate some saying or other. I have recovered one from America, and will send it in a day or two, but I think it will be safer to send these last three together

Perhaps I may add two semi-translations from the French

Yours truly
C M Yonge

1The mistake was evidently in sending some material to the wrong printer.
