24 May 1876

My dear Wallace

I am extremely obliged for the to you for the copy of your most valuable and interesting book which I received a few days ago.

I was not aware it was so near publication and had long felt the need for the information it gives.

I shall take advantage of its existence to modify in same measure my Physical Geography books and I think it mist be a standard authority very soon as there is so [[2]] far as I know no account of the subject it treats of in any language.

Always yours truly | D. T. Ansted [signature]
