D[ea]r Sir

I should have returned the Revise of my article before but your printer has a bad habit of not returning the MSS. with the proof, or the corrected proof with the revise, which causes extra trouble & liability to error. I wrote for the corrected proof two days back but he has not sent it, so I return the revise for press.

Yours truly | Alfred R. Wallace [signature]
