Old Orchard, Broadstone

Jan[uar]y 13th. 1904.

W. Rothenstein Esq.1

Dear Sir

I shall be glad to see you the week after next, any day & hour you like to fix.

A little delay will perhaps see an improvement in the weather.

Let me have a line the day before to say when we may expect you -- Our house is half-a-mile from the Station, & if you call at the Post Office on your way they will direct you.

Yours very truly | Alfred R. Wallace [signature]


1. William Rothenstein (1872-1945), English painter and writer.
