Dr. Alfred Russel Wallace

Dear Sir,

We send you herewith three sample cases in lighter cloths for "Wonderful Century Reader", and should feel much obliged if you would reply to us, with your choice marked on one of them.

For our part, we think the blue is the best for showing up the ink, and next to that the red.

Yours faithfully | FRS [signature]
