Old Orchard



Oct[ober]. 25th 1910

Editor of "Daily Chronicle"

Dear Sir

I return Mr Begbie's wonderfully clever & sympathetic exposition of my views. Not one tenth of what he makes me say did I ever say to him but he has so well condensed the cream of all I have written on social questions, that I can find nothing that I have not thought -- though I may [[2]] not ever have said or written it.

I hardly like being made to have said so much in so short a time impossibly short -- but that is I suppose Mr Begbie's business.

Will you be so good as to send me a copy of the papers with both articles when issued.

Yours very truly | Alfred R. Wallace [signature]
