G.A. Boulenger Esq.1
If you are now at the Museum can you kindly send me the correct numbers to insert in the passage overleaf as peculiar Palæarctic genera.
Exact accuracy is not necessary & genera which just enter other regions with one op. may be considered peculiar. The printers are waiting for the [] sheet, so I shall be glad if you can give me the approximate corrections at once.
Yours very truly | Alfred R. Wallace [signature]
1. George Albert Boulenger (1858-1937), Belgian-British zoologist who worked at the Natural History Museum's Department of Zoology from 1880 to 1920.
