April 29th. 1910

Dear Dr. Wallace,

In reply to your letter this mooring, I shall be pleased to recommend the Trustees to allow your publishers to take election of all the blocks you mention, except fig. 55 [[2]] of Mammalia (Zetrabeodon[?]) which belongs to Gaundry's publishers in Paris. This is not a very satisfactory figure after all. Can you wait until June 25th; the next meeting? I feel sure the Trustees will grant your request. In the case of figures by [[3]] Marst[?] & Traquxin[?] it will be necessary to state in the legend that they are the authors.

Yours sincerely | A. Smith Woodward [signature]
