     Sir,--I have nothing to say as to Mr. [[F. W.]] Fox's proposal. The Hague Conference was a success. Yet it was followed by great wars, and an enormous increase of armaments all over the world.

     Why should Mr. Fox's plan do any better? I have no hope in existing Governments, only in the people.--Yours, etc.,

Alfred R. Wallace.
Broadstone, Wimborne, August 19, 1905.
