Parkstone, Dorset.

My dear Mrs. Stetson1

I was glad to hear that you are in England again to enlighten the benighted Philistines. I have sent your Programme to Mr. Kelly who arranged your lectures here before & he has I presume written to you. If lectures are arranged here I hope you will come & stay with us as before.

Wishing you a successful visit

Believe me | Yours very truly | Alfred R. Wallace [signature]
