Dear Mr. Harting1
I send you herewith what is considered the best photo[graph]. of myself in recent years (1895) – also two quite recent ones of which choose one & return me the other. I rather like the reading one best, but most people like the writing one which is a pleasanter expression.
With best wishes | Believe me | Yours very truly | Alfred R. Wallace [signature]
1. James Edmund Fotheringham Harting (1841-1928). English ornithologist and naturalist.
