The Assistant Secretary of the British Association

Dear Sir

I believe the British Association issue to Scientific and Literary Societies a list of gentlemen willing to give lectures on Scientific subjects. When Some years ago I declined to have my name inserted being too much occupied to prepare lectures. I should now wish to have my name down if the Association [[2]] publish such a list.

Please observe my change of address.

I remain | Yours faithfully | Alfred R. Wallace [signature]
