My dear Cousin1
We shall be very glad to see you and put you up for a night or two if you can cycle to us. I see it is only about 60 mile from your present place -- an easy day's rise for a young man. Come as early as you can after Wednesday next as my daughter will be then at home. I am just now very busy building a new house & making a new garden 4 miles <from here which I should like> []2 you to see. Send us a card the day before to let us know when to expect you
Believe me | Yours very truly | Signed Alfred R. Wallace
