My dear Madam

I am very sorry that Mr Macmillan was so disappointing. He might as well have looked at the drawings I have been waiting to hear from Mr Ward, 67 Chandos St, Covent Garden He will gladly see you, and I sent him the MS of the Bear and the Goblin.1 You had better make an appointment with him mentioning my name; and shew him some of your drawings I think it might lead to something as his line is illustration

yours truly
C M Yonge

1'The Bear and the Goblin' was a poem by Francis Dawson. CMY was trying to help this illustrator, who had evidently illustrated it, get commissions from publishers.
