To the Editor of the "Morning Chronicle"

Sir-- Since forwarding you Letter No. 1 published in the Morning Chronicle of the 8th November last, I have heard that the writer of that and the following is now in England, superintending the publication of his three works on the country and natural productions of the Brazils, and that his remaining brother is in California, surveyor to a company employing 150 men to cut "a canal to bring the river Stanislaus a large tract of land, rich with gold, but useless without plenty of water."

Of Letters 2 and 3, the first was written previous to, and the other soon after, No. 1.



1. This introductory letter was written by Wallace’s cousin, Charles Algernon Wilson, 'Naturae Amator' being his pseudonym. See WCP5420 and WCP5421 for the letters from Wallace which this text introduces.
