Transcription information




As I have to go to Edinburgh by the 10 train on Monday 30th November, I shall be glad if convenient to come to you, on Sunday Evening. The only afternoon train reaches Waterloo at 6.35 so I could be with you about 7. Do not let it keep you in town if you have any engagement out as I can get up in time by starting at 7. am.

Yours faithfully Alfred R. Wallace [signature]
