My dear Professor Marsh
Many thanks for your kindness in sending me a copy of your splendid work on the Extinct Toothed Birds. The beauty of the getting up of the volume is well suited to the extreme case and elaboration of your scientific work. It is a book of immense value and interest. But if you continue publishing on this grand scale life will not be long enough to make known half your wonderful discoveries!
Believe me | yours very faithfully | Alfred R. Wallace [signature]
Prof. O. C. Marsh
