My dear Annie
We had a glorious walk today over the Grinsel Pass, & I got a lot of Soldanellas and a Priniula which I send off in a box. A bigger box was sent from Rhonedplaner Hotel yesterday. Tomorrow we shall walk from here to Handek to Gotanise on the way & see the finest waterfall in Switzerland. Pa is quite well & sends his love to Ma & you. Splendid weather so far.
Yours very affectionately | Alfred R. Wallace [signature]
