Dear Mr Crookes
Many thanks for the copy of your papers on Psychic Force. The 2nd is most admirable; both in the tone & spirit with which it answers criticisms, & the irresistable force of its new facts. Spiritualists are greatly indebted to you for furnishing them, in your self registered experiments, with a final [] answer to the "biologising" objection, recently put forth by Balfour Stewart & still more recently made the subject of a book supposed to crush spiritualism, by Mr Zereffi[?].
I hope you may soon be able to exhibit these self registering experiments in the theatre of the Royal Institution.
yours very faithfully | Alfred R. Wallace [signature]
W. Crookes Esq.
