My dear Mr Wallace
I have only just on my return to London received your note. I hope I am not too late in giving[?] the memories. It would give me sincere pleasure [] to find that you were successful in your application. I believe a better man and me who worked more thoroughly carry out the wishes of the public and at the same time secure [] the sympathies of all interested in scientific and aesthetic truth could not be appointed.
Believe me | very [1 word illeg.] yours | Geo. J. Allman [signature
A. R. Wallace Esq.
