Rosehill, Dorking.

Nov[embe]r.25th. 1877

Dear Sir

I return you Dr. Carpenter’s1 letters. I sent the "Notes" to Pat[ernoster]. Row2 thinking to save time as I felt sure there would be some one[sic] there to open letters addressed to the "Editor" & send the MSS. to the printer.

The proof only reached me yesterday (Saturday) morning and I returned it corrected at noon.

Tomorrow (Monday) I go to town at 6pm. so if there are any proofs of the notes ready they had [[2]] better be sent me by messenger early in the afternoon & I will return them at once. If not ready I could call at the printing office on Tuesday morning if I get a note or a telegram to that effect addressed to me at

13, Notting Hill Terrace

Bayswater Road. W.

where I shall be till about 10 on Tuesday morning.

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

W. Allingham Esq.3
