The Dell, Grays, Essex,

4th August 1872.

James Croll, Esq.

Dear Sir,--Your note sent to Dorking has been redirected here from London. The paper you are so kind as to send me may not arrive, so perhaps you will send me another. Mr. Herbert Spencer will be found at the Athanaeum Club, Pall Mall, and Mr. George Mivart at 7 North Bank, Regent's Park, London, N.W.

I shall read your paper with very great interest.--Believe me, yours very faithfully,

Alfred R. Wallace.
