Dear Dr Wallace,
I heartily appreciate your kindness in writing to me about my B.A. Address, of which I believe I sent you a copy. I had no idea that I was using an illustration which you had already employed. There is often a good deal of this similarity of idea, which is not real plagiarism, and I am sure you would not for a moment think so. It is to me always interesting when the [] same notion occurs to several minds who have arrived at it from somewhat different points of view.
I have pleasure in sending you, under separate cover, a copy of my Romanes Lecture at Oxford in 1903.
I have, as everyone has, a great admiration for your life and work. But I do not remember ever having seen your volume "The World of Life". I shall refer to it, and to the passage you indicate.
Meanwhile I thank you for writing, and am | Cordially & faithfully yours | Oliver J. Lodge [signature]
