My dear Will
I have just remembered that I forgot to order the book on Conic Sections you wanted. I Sent your letter to Hursh & have forgotten the title. If you will write it correctly in the enclosed letter & post it you will have it in a day or two.[] No news. -- Very busy -- awfully busy with garden & greenhouse blinds, etc. preparing for Exams, etc. etc…
Write me some news about College.
Your affectionate Papa | Alfred R. Wallace -- [signature]
