Parkstone, Dorset

Oct[obe]r 5th 1901

My dear Percival Wright,

Thanks for your note & corrections. I think, however, what I specially asked you for, was, whether you had any corrections or additions in the fauna of the Seychelles Islands especially as to the Reptiles and Amphibia, p. 430-433. the materials for which you gave me, if you will just look over these three pages & let me know if you have any further information or can refer me to any book containing any later details. [[2]] I suppose it will be best to ask Mrs Boulanger [if] the B.M. to give me any corrections.

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