HARVARD UNIVERSITY

BUSSEY INSTITUTION

FOREST HILLS, MASS.

Sept[ember] 25, 1912

Dr. Alfred R. Wallace,

Broadstone, Dorset

Dear Sir:

I am writing to send our warm thanks and appreciation of your kindness in sending in your portrait for our laboratory. I assure you that you have done us a great honor and that it will be stimulating to our research.

With my sincerest respect, I am | Very truly yours | E. M. East [signature]
