Parkstone, Dorset

August 18th 1899

Dear Dr Guillemard

I have much pleasure in sending a copy of one of my best recent Photos.

I have been suffering lately from inflamed eyes which limit my reading & writing, but am otherwise in good health though feeling the weight of years.

With best wishes | Believe me | Yours very truly | Alfred R. Wallace [signature]
