My sister has to dispose of a large armchair which formerly belonged to our father, the late Dr Alfred Russel Wallace, and was for many years constantly used by him. If your society would care to accept it for the use of members my sister will be very glad to present it.
My sister's address is, :--
The Chart; Oxted, Surrey.
where the chair may be seen.
[] My sister is leaving her house at the end of this month, so will you kindly let her or me know your decision as soon as possible & should you decide to accept it perhaps you would be good enough to make arrangements for the chair's removal.
Yours faithfully, | W. G. Wallace3 [signature]
