Dear Mr. Jordan
Many thanks to Mr Rothschild & to yourseld for sending me the plates of New Guinea butterflies, & others.
I am very glad to see these fine things so well represented.
I am taking Seitz's Butterflies of the World1, but they come out rather slowly. What glorious things are Papilio Alexander[?] & P. supremus[?]2!
Yours very truly | Alfred R. Wallace [signature]
