My dear Violet
I enclose you Will’s last letter - Send on to Hurst when read.
Supposing by an extraordinary accident Mrs. Greek knew the agent, would he tell her all his criminal secrets, even to details of bribes & their amounts? She lives in S.W. of London far from the East & is occupied all day. [] How she should get this knowledge which would [have] taken a clever detective probably months at unlimited expense is to me inconceivable.
However no doubt it would be the theory of those who know nothing of Spiritualism.
I sent you a copy of American Fabian. There [] is a part in it about Sand for Children in Parks!
Adieu | Your affectionate Pa | Alfred R. Wallace [signature]
I have heard of the Gorge, but I think it is not water-warm throughout
