MS Bodleian Library Benson C.5.4 fol 96

Dear Miss Benson
I have sent up your joint story, for which I thank you much, to have the length of pages calculated. If it goes in, it will stand first before a sad and true scene in a secularised hospital at Paris by Madame de Witt so as to shew the fruits of the cult of humanity without its Master. But I am not sure that I can get it in, and I also think that though it is rather long for the purpose, it might for its own sake and that of the idea be longer so that I shall not so much regret if it has to be sacrificed
Yours truly
C M Yonge
