My Dear Dr. Russel Wallace
I cannot communicate with all the friends I am in sympathy with, I have only time to send Christmas greetings to a few for whom I have the most sincere regard, and as I cash my thoughts round, I feel that you justly merit my first consideration, especially so, since you have been very much on my mind, after knowing, as a Fellow of the Royal Society, you have expressed strong disapproval of Mr Lloyd George's1 Insurance [] Bill. As long ago as July I recorded my feeble protest against it, when paying a tribute to the far-reaching Effects of my friend Dr. Allinson's2 propaganda.
I enclose, or rather send by post, a copy of the''Weekly Times'' that at your leisure you may see what I have said about it.
In this week's issue of the same paper I have [] written under "What is Democracy" and H. S. Schuttess Young K. C has a good letter on the Insurance Bill under the "Open Forum".
I hope to have the pleasure of calling to enquire how you are, during the vacation: You may be able to explain to me the cause of the phenomenon of the "Majic Board" [sic].
Now wishing you all the good you desire and deserve
I remain | Yours very sincerely
James Marshall3 [signature]
