Prof. E.P. Wright

My dear Percival Wright,

I am now correcting proofs for a new edition of my Island Life & shall be much obliged if you can give me any corrections or additions to the short account I gave of the productions of the Seychelles -- chiefly from your information -- at pp. 430-34 of the last edition. [[2]] Trusting you are well.

Believe me | yours very truly | Alfred R Wallace [signature]
