Waldrow Edge, Duppas Hill


Dec[embe]r 17th 1878

Strachan Esq[uire]

Dear Sir

Having a little time to spare I have been getting together some notes for an article on "New Guinea & its Inhabitants" which I think will be suitable for the pages of your Review.

I shall probably have it finished by the end of the week. Shall I send it you, for your February issue?

Yours faithfully | Alfred R. Wallace [signature]
