Dear Sir1

As there are three gates on the road from Broadstone to our house, I will put a lantern on ours on Thursday evening, & you can bring it with you up to the house. When you get into the main road from the Station turn to the left, past several houses then down hill, & our gate is on the right.

Yours truly | Alfred R. Wallace [signature]
