Dear Prof Marsh

On thinking over your earnest request that I should contribute something to your meeting, I shall be willing to make a few remarks on-- "Wind as a seed-carrier, in relation to one of the most difficult problems in Geographical Distribution." Either tomorrow or Thursday morning or afternoon suit me.

Yours very truly | Alfred R Wallace [signature]
