Dear Sir

In reply to the letter from the Provisional Committee of the above Association, I beg to say, that I heartily sympathise with this movement, and have done what I could to make it known in the "Address," from which you have printed a leaflet, sent me. I have too many occupations to permit me to take any active part in your movement, but if the use of my name, as viewing it with the greatest interest and approval, will do anything to further it, you are quite welcome to use it.

It seems to me that nothing can really be done without a large amount of money to start with, and that the first thing Should be to endeavour to induce wealthy philanthropists to aid in forming a fund of, say, £100,000 to set the thing going, after which it will easily support itself, and also absorb any number of the unemployed of Europe.

Believe me | Yours very truly | Alfred R. Wallace.
