My dear Violet1
Will2 came home yesterday night & is going back on Easter Sunday, so we thought you might like to come here on the 2nd. & then go on to Norfolk. It will not make much difference & you may not have another chance of seeing him for another year or two. He was obliged to come now as there [] is a little slack time.
Please send a P.Card to say if you will come, & send me the address of the Bacon Man!!
Can you not send the two Jungle books for Will?
In haste | Your affectionate Pa | Alfred R. Wallace [signature]
1. Violet Isabel, ARW’s daughter, (1869 - 1945).
