Samuel Henshaw Esq.1
On Nov[embe]r. 8th. you wrote me a post-card informing me that you would have some photographs taken of the most striking Geographical and Palæontological rooms of the Agassiz Museum, and would send me copies for reproduction to illustrate a reprint of my article. Not having received them, and thinking it possible that press of other business or [] perhaps illness may have caused you to forget all about it, I venture to trouble you again
You will remember that I wrote to Prof. Agassiz2 on the subject not knowing that he was abroad.
Believe me | Yours very truly | Alfred R. Wallace [signature]
