Dear Sir,
I hope you will receive “Heartsease” tomorrow, as I shall send it by the South Western early in the day. I shall be glad for it to appear in the same style as the first edition of the Heir of Redclyffe but I do not think the volumes will be quite so large. You do not say what number you propose to print, I suppose not fewer than 1500 or 2000. I shall be quite ready to correct the proofs.

One of the mottoes of the chapters was supplied from Mr F Tennyson’s poems which you kindly sent me, and which arrived just as the lines were needed.

I am glad to hear that the 4th edition of the Heir of Redclyffe has sold off,1 I hope the cheap one may meet with equal success.

Yours faithfully
C. M. Yonge

1Presumably dated 1854. The 5th edition is dated 1854.
