Dear Mr. Wallace

I will get the article you recommend. I have not seen it yet.

Your book came. I have read it, and I will write a review. But I cannot express an opinion on the main question as I don't know enough about science. I found the book of great interest and can heartily recommend it. But the asfessment is one for [[2]] astronomers.

I have a small telescope (3") and get a lot of interest out of it. I find the star clusters most attractive. But the craters on the moon are intensely interesting. What a cold, wild and solitary globe it looks. And how I should like to spend a few weeks there—if I could find food water and air.

With best wishes | Yours | R. Blatchford [signature]
