My dear Violet
I send you now Will’ 2nd letter which please send on to Hurst -- to be returned to me. You will see that the air of Boston agrees with them though there is no work yet.
I send you a "Brotherhood" containing a good bit of Peter Halkelt -- which is fine -- also an interview with Christ, which is also fine & just what [] he would probably say.
We are waiting for fine weather to get rid of my cough & go for walks. I dare not go out [in] the cold damp weather.
The doings of our Admiral in Crete are enough to make one sick, wild, & mad!
In haste, no news.
Your affectionate Pa | Alfred R Wallace [signature]
