Broadstone, Wimborne

April 4th. 1909

Dr. Sir2

Thanks for your good wishes.

I shall be interested to see your "address" on "Racial Supremacy" when presented.

Perhaps you will not agree with the views in my art[icle]. on "Evolution and Character" in in [sic] the "Fortnightly Review," of Jan[uar]y 1908. I fear I can do no more than I have done for Phrenology.

Yours faithfully | Alfred R. Wallace [signature]
