Frith Hill, Godalming

Jan[uary] 20th 1889

My dear Bates,

I have found among my books <one> belonging to the Societys Literary which has remained overlooked for several years. A "Mackintosh Scenery of England & Wales - -" return it by Parcel Post.

Can you forward me by Rail the numbers of the Journal from 1880 to the last issued. The last I had was 1879. I will send you a receipt for them or I authorize you to sign [[2]] for them in my name.

With best wishes for the new year | Believe me | Yours faithfully | Alfred R Wallace [signature]

H.W Bates Esq

Assis[tan]t Secretary R.[oyal] G[eographical] Society
