Dear Mr Edwards
I sent your letter (part of it) about the Highest Butterflies to "Nature". Your paper on the same subject is very interesting and convincing. I send the duplicate copy you were so good as to send me, to Mr. Poulton1 of Oxford, one of our most rising students of Entomology, and he will take the opportunity some day of investigating the subject. I hope you have received my new book -- Darwinism -- which I ordered the publisher to send you. I move next week to a new house in a milder & more sheltered locality and my address for the future will be --Parkstone, Dorsetshire.
Yours very faithfully | Alfred R. Wallace [signature]
June 18th 1889
1. Professor Edwarrd Bagnall Poulton (1856-1943). British evolutionary biologist.
