To the Editor of "The Vaccination Inquirer."

    Dear Sir,--I write a line just to say how very much pleased I am with your advocacy of strenuousness. It is above all other things what we most want. We want a strenuous man in Parliament especially, to show up all the fallacies of the official advocates of vaccination.

    I send you a tract recently received, which puts the absurdity of the "danger to the community" theory better and stronger than I have ever seen it put.--Yours truly,

Alfred R. Wallace.
Broadstone, Dorset, May 10th, 1903.

    The tract referred to, and kindly sent to us by Dr. Russel Wallace, is by a Harvard University man, and doctor of medicine, Dr. Charles K. Wheeler. It is entitled "The Outrage of Compulsory Vaccination, or a plea for personal liberty." . . . [[followed by some quoted passages from the work]]
