Transcription information




Broadstone, Wimborne

Dec[embe]r 11th. 1906

Dear Mr. Becker

We expected you this afternoon, but I fear now, you must have expected me to write again. I thought it was not necessary unless I could not be at home.

My wife wishes me to say she hopes you will come Thursday or Friday if convenient - or any day next week, only send us a card the day before.

There is a train from Wimborne at 2.34 and we are 1/2 a mile from Broadstone Station. There are many evening trains back to Wimborne.

Yours very truly | Alfred R. Wallace [signature]
