736 Convention Street.

Baton Rouge, La..

Apr[il]. 28. 1912.

Dr. Alfred Russel Wallace,

Broadstone Junction, England.

Dear Dr. Wallace,

My diary shows that it was just one year ago today that I had the grand privilege of visiting you. I have often thought during the year of what a significant day was in my life. I hope the past year has gone well with you.

I am writing to you with regard to the tragic passing over of Mr. Stead1. I think now if he possibly can he will communicate with some friends back here and of course his testimony will be of priceless value. If you should hear either directly or indirectly anything from him I should be so pleased to know what it is. Also any other late information which you have gleaned from the spirit world.

Most sincerely yours | J.C Huckaley [signature]


1. Stead, William Thomas (1849-1912). English newspaper editor.
