Sorry for the delay. (I had to make time to read the manual, because I'm
starting to forget the details.)

You need to put calls to `write-editor-global-header' and
`write-editor-global-footer' around the call to `write-to-file'.
Also put calls to `read-editor-global-header' and
`read-editor-global-footer' around the call to `read-from-file'.

See section 8.2 of the MrEd manual for details.
