Ternate3

Sept[embe]r 1858

My dear Dr Shaw --4

I send you a few notes ab[ou]t New Guinea to be read at the Royal Geographical Societys meeting if you think proper. Afterwards will you have any objection to send it to the Athenaeum for publication as it contains nothing worthy of insertion in the Societys Transactions.

With best wishes | I remain | yours very faithfully | Alfred R. Wallace [signature]

Dr Norton Shaw
