Dear Professor Poulton
It was very kind of you to send me the proofs of your obituary notice of my father, and especially for giving me permission to suggest any alteration which I think will improve it. I have read it through several times and have marked in pencil such typographical errors or omissions as I have noticed.
With the exception of two passages I like it very much and I think [] it is excellently done. I do not think the two omissions [see Notes A & B] which I suggest will detract from its value at all, in fact I believe they will enhance it, and I think my father’s ‘heresies’ will appear in truer perspective in relation to his scientific work. I trust in any case that you will believe my criticisms are made in the friendliest spirit.
With kind regards, Yours sincerely, W. G. Wallace [signature]
