Dear Mr Wallace,
Before I leave this country I beg to say your good bye. I had wished to pay you a call, but being very busy during the last week in London, I could find no convenient day. My book will be out to-morrow[sic], and I myself am going to take a trip through Scotland and up to Shetland. If you would care come day to make a journey to Scandinavia and Finland I scarcely need say how welcome you would be. Thanking you once more for all the kindness you have shown me.
I remain, dear Mr Wallace, | Yours very faithfully | Edvard Westermarck [signature]
