Parkstone, Dorset

April 21st, 1897

My dear Grant Allen

I must send you a line to say how much I have enjoyed your "Natural Inequality". It is a most admirable answer to one of the commonest but most stupid objections to Socialism. I only wish it were published in some volume or periodical more likely to be read by our opponents.

With very best wishes | Believe me | Yours very sincerely | Alfred R. Wallace [signature]
