Dear Mr Macmillan
Some years ago Mr Craik wrote to me that the sale of the Cameos of English History had so fallen off that it was not worth while to give me £100 for the copyright of the volume after it had appeared in the Monthly Packet, and I therefore discontinued thinking of the separate publication. I think the volumes ended with the Restoration

Since that, and especially lately, so many people have asked for the volumes to be continued that I venture to ask whether you would go on with them, giving me a smaller sum for the copyright

Yours truly
C M Yonge
