Edw. Westermarck, Esq.
Please do not send me 2nd. proofs of your book. It will read either the first or the second proofs, but not both. It is quite unnecessary and only confusing to me.
Alfred R. Wallace.
1. Editor Charles H. Smith's Note: Fifth of fourteen letters from Wallace to Edward Westermarck, concerning the writing of the latter's The History of Human Marriage. These were included in the article "Letters From Edward B. Tylor and Alfred Russel Wallace to Edward Westermarck; Ed. With Introductory Remarks Concerning the Publication of The History of Human Marriage" by K. Rob. V. Wikman that appeared in 1940 as Acta Academiae Aboensis Humaniora XIII.7. The Wallace letters make up the second half of the work. Note that there are several apparent minor editing errors in the source material that I have not bothered to correct.
