Rosehill, Dorking

Saturday morning

The Editor of "Fraser"1

D[ea]r Sir

I return proofs which I only received this morning.

In consequence of the letters & proofs you sent me from Dr Carpenter2, I wrote three additional "notes" which I sent to Mess[er]s Longmans’ by Thursday evenings post. If, as the printers seem to say, these cannot now go in, please return them to me and inform Dr Carpenter of the reason I do not now notice them. If so As there are so few connections in [[2]] the proofs I suppose it will hardly be necessary for me to see a revise. If however you get in the additional notes, & I get the proofs of them tomorrow or Monday morning, I could call at the printing office on Tuesday morning to look over complete revise, as I shall be in Town on Monday night.

Believe me | Yours truly | Alfred R. Wallace [signature]
