    I have no adequate knowledge of the influence of Ruskin at present. Personally I hold him to be in the front rank as a writer, and as a philosophical thinker on art, ethics, and social economy. My impression is that his influence is increasing, and that it ought to increase.

Alfred R. Wallace.
