I have read with the most intense interest your book on "man's place in this Universe" - & feel very grateful to you for producing such a book.
The conclusions you arrive at have such an important bearing upon the whole of [] religious life & thought, that I venture to ask if you could supply me with a few maps & charts by which to illustrate the book to uneducated people.
It is my intention to go through it in a popular sort of way [] with a class of men here. I am not however good at producing diagrams. Perhaps if you c[oul]d lend me a few, illustrating each chapter, I might get large ones made which would be invaluable for lecture work. The whole <setting?> of your book is so entirely valuable that I feel the best those who appreciate it can do is to make it known as lucidly & as intelligently as possible.
I hope you will pardon the liberty I take in addressing you,
Believe me | Very faithfully Yours | F. L. H. Millard2 [signature]
To Professor Wallace
