Old Orchard,



Oct.[ober] 10th. 1912

F.D. Morice Esq

Dear Sir

I send you an "Illustrated Lond[on]. News" with the best new portrait of myself. Though only a "Half Tone" it is quite as good for framing as a Photo, and more permanent.

Believe me | Yours very truly | Alfred R. Wallace [signature]
