18, Sefton Drive,


9 Aug[us]t 1898

Dear Sir,

I have read your pamphlet "Justice not Charity", which I have read with much interest, and with which I have considerable sympathy. I thank you especially for the inscription which is much appreciated.

May I take the opportunity of expressing [[2]] my sense of gratitude for your books. "Darwinism" lies on a shelf to my hand when I sit.

Yours faithfully | John Watson [signature]

Alfred R. Wallace Esq.

F.R.S. &c &c.
