Dr Alfred Russel Wallace.

Dear Sir,

The firm of James & Co. who published Gore's "Worlds of Spice" is dead, so we applied to their successors Messrs Ward Lock & Co. Ltd. who now publish this book.

They reply today that they are unable to supply as with an electro of the Star Cluster, but do not state any reason for their refusal.
