Broadstone, Wimborne

Oct[ober] 2nd, 1906

Wilfred Scawen Blunt Esq.

Dear Mr Blunt1

Many thanks for sending me your very powerful, clear & convincing pamphlet "Atrocities of Justice." Those kind of things are the inevitable result of semi-despotic mice and militarism. Will not Lord Cromer2 be obliged to indict you for libel? I hope he may & wish you success.

Yours very truly | Alfred R. Wallace [signature]
