ARW to Dr. Richard Norris.) Old Orchard, Broadstone, Dorset
Oct[ober]. 4th. 1913
My dear Dr Norris Except for a continuous weakness I seem improving a little in general health, and the chronic rheumatic pain in my right shoulder has almost passed away in the last month (after about 3 years) and I can impute it to nothing but about 1/4 pint a day of Bulmer's Cider! A most agreeable medicine!
The irritability of the skin, however, continues, though the inflammation of the legs has somewhat diminished...
My increasing weakness is now my most serious trouble, as it prevents me really from doing any more work, and causes a large want of balance a liability to fall down. Even moving about my the room after books &c. dressing and undressing, make me want to lie down and rest.
Hoping that you are better and that you are coming south earlier I this year, and with kind remember aces to your daughter -- Believe me Yours very sincerely Alfred R. Wallace.
