My two small books issued by Cassell2 were both written before any agreement with you.
My health has been so weak with a complication of diseases requiring almost all my attention, and I have also been overwhelmed with correspondence & [] Correspondence & domestic affairs, that I have been quite unable to give the necessary time to go on with the larger work. I am however improving slightly, and may perhaps be able shortly to get on a little with your book, but it will anyhow be a very slow process if it gets done at all. I can only hope it may be possible for me to do it! but as I expressly warned you I cannot be at all sure.
Yours truly | Alfred R. Wallace [signature]
