Feb[ruary]. 15. 92.

Dear Mr. Wallace,

I find that a meeting has been fixed for me here at 3 p.m. tomorrow. That is the hour you asked me to call. But I would run over to Parkhurst tomorrow morning, if it would not inconvenience you, & call about 11:45. If this is inconvenient -- for I hear with regret that you are not-well -- would you kindly telegraph me at above address.


Annie Besant1 [signature]


1. Besant, Annie (1847-1933). British socialist, theosophist, women's rights activist, writer and orator.
