NOTE: Is date of letter recorded correctly?; Letter from J. M. Dent (publisher) to Alfred Russel Wallace from London, 3 Oct 1912, sending a proof of his article (unnamed, but almost certainly "The nature and origin of life"). Notes: Letter and proof were in the same document wallet with other papers by and relating to short works by Alfred Russel Wallace, when listed. The article mentions Dr Schafer so almost certainly the article published in "Everyman", a penny literary weekly begun in 1912 by J. M. Dent & Son, publishers of the book series of the same title. The first issue, for 12 [sic] October 1912, included a contribution from Alfred Russel Wallace. Source: electronic finding aid for J. M.
