    Dr. Alfred Russel Wallace, F.R.S., the renowned scientist, wrote:--

    "I wish you a very successful meeting. I recommend two things:--(1) Let every anti-vaccinator vote (at all elections) only for those candidates who promise to vote against all compulsory or state-aided vaccination; and (2) let the National Anti-Vaccination League make arrangements to be represented in the next Parliament by their tried and able friend Dr. Walter R. Hadwen, who is one of our most instructed and most eloquent supporters."
