My dear Mrs Hooker1
I am quite unable to write anything for your meeting, as I have already told Dr. Willis. All I can do is to wish you a successful meeting, and to assure you that Prof[essor]. Crookes2 is as firm a Spiritualist as ever, having long since declared in a paper read to the Psyc[hical]. Res[earch]. Society, that he held firmly to all he had written on the subject, & had since seen no reason whatever to alter his opinions and beliefs.
With kind regards, | I am, | yours very truly | Alfred R. Wallace – [signature]
