Broadstone, Wimbourne

Jan[uar]y. 7th 1907

F. J. Blake Esq[uire].

Dear Sir

As I cannot take any part in the work of your Society and know none of your active members, I had rather not have my name in such a prominent position as to be called "Patron".

But as I see my friend Mr. J. W. Sharpe has allowed himself to be made an Honorary President1, you can, if you like put my name along with his.

Wishing you success | Yours very truly | Alfred R. Wallace [signature]


1. Presumably of the Bournemouth Spiritualist Church from which this letter originates.
