Old Orchard



May 3rd 1912

Henry Fairfield Osborn Esq.[uire]

My dear Sir,

In accordance with your request I herewith send you a list of my published books. The delay has been caused by the only complete copy I had sent away for publication.

I have always intended to make out[?] a complete list of my various communications [[2]] to periodical literature, but have hitherto been unable to find time to do so. All my scientific communications however will be found in the Royal Society Index Catalogue of Scientific Papers, which no doubt you have access to.

If your article is not yet finished I shall be glad to have a proof for revision or to give you any further information you may require.

Yours very truly | Alfred R.Wallace [signature]
