Dear Sir1,

May I suggest that the Secretary, when he returns, should communicate direct with Miss Wallace2 at The Chart, Oxted about Sir Alfred Russel Wallace's chair as there will be little time to make other arrangements should the Roy[al]. Geographical Soc[iety]. not want it.

Yours faithfully, | (Mr) W. G. Wallace3 [signature]
