Dear Mr Beddard
Thank you very much for your interesting facts of internal variation of an earthworm. It affords a very valuable case and the remarks you make upon it are very suggestive.
If you should meet with any other cases of a similar nature either in your own experience or in your reading I should be much obliged if you will communicate it to me.
Believe me | Yours faithfully | Alfred R. Wallace [signature]
Frank E. Beddard Esq.1
