My dear Sir
I know nothing of the Oxford Museum, but I expect there will be no difficulty in their accepting your illustrations, and I am sure Prof. Poulton2 would help you, & perhaps even find room for them in his Entomological Department. It is a thing that will be accepted or rejected on its own merits, certainly not on the recommendation [] of any one who has not seen it.
Believe me | Yours very truly | Alfred R. Wallace [signature]
