Physical description

Transcription information




Dr. General Lippitt1

I am sending cards to my friends in America announcing my change of address from Godalming to Parkstone, Dorsetshire. I am going there immediately it being a much milder climate and more suitable to my health which is still not quite satisfactory. I have therefore given up all idea of again visiting America.

Yours very sincerely | Alfred R. Wallace [signature]
