Lt. Col. Sir D. Prain2,
I herewith acknowledge the receipt of 9 letters written by my father to yourself.
I will take every care of them and return them as soon as they have been copied, which may take a little time.
I will call Mr. Marchant's3 [] attention to your kind suggestion with regard to the other letters.
With many thanks, | I am, | Yours truly, | W. G. Wallace4 [signature]
