Dr. A. R. Wallace. O. M.

Hearty congratulations on your birthday with the sincere wish that many years are yet ahead to use your powerful pen from one who revels in all your writings since your "Travels on the Amazon" captivated me when [I was] a youth.

Believe me | Yours very truly | Hbt Stevens [signature]
