Dear Mr Slater2
I am very sorry that the lost journals cannot be found. As a last resort I am writing to Sir Clement Markham3 to ask if he knows anything of them. If not I will see if Macmillan will arrange for the materials we have to be published, on any reasonable terms. I will let you know the result.
Yours very truly | Alfred R. Wallace [signature]
