Waldron Edge, Duppas Hill


July 12th. 1878

My dear Sir

I only come to town occasionally as I have nothing to call me there except sometimes to visit a library. I will try however to call upon you the latter end of next week or some day before you leave.

Believe me | yours faithfully | Alfred R. Wallace [signature]

O. C. Marsh Esq.
