Feb[ruary] 12 1886.
My dear Gilman1,
I enclose a copy of a letter from Wallace2 which explains itself.
Can[']t you get him a chance for a short course of lectures at the Peabody Trust, and a few at your University.
Anything he says on Natural Science will be good. [] I have written Walker[?] to speak for a course at the Lowell Institute but have said nothing about the matter to anyone else as yet.
Yours very truly | O. C. Marsh3 [signature]
Pres[ident]. D.C. Gilman.
