The University,


3 Nov[ember]. 1913.

Dear Dr Wallace,

I must reply at once that I am not acquainted either with Lee's work or with Webb's book, nor can U say that what you tell me [[2]] of them makes me anxious to see them. It is so easy to speculate in these matters without specific groundwork of specific knowledge; and I mistrust my own judgement.

Believe me | Faithfully yours | Oliver Lodge [signature]
