Dear Dr Osborn,
I thank you very much for the complete and careful account of my scientific work and for the great honour you have done me in linking my name with those of Lyell, Darwin and Dalton.
Your article is by far the best account of my work and of the various influences which [] determined its direction and the conclusion at which I have arrived.
I beg to assure you that I am much gratified by the generous appreciation of so competent a biologist as yourself
Believe me | Yours very sincerely | Alfred R. Wallace [signature]
