Dr. A. R. Wallace on Colonisation. (S676a: 1909)

Editor Charles H. Smith's Note: The second of two letters to the Editor included under this title, referring to Mr. Clifford Sharp's comments on S655 and S674a; printed on page 390 of The New Age issue of 4 March 1909. To link directly to this page, connect with:

To The Editor of "The New Age."

    Permit me a few lines to point out that Mr. Sharp's reply to my letter [[S674a]] contains a further misrepresentation. The two sentences he quotes from my tract [[S655]]--p. 6 and p. 7--are Mr. Mills', not mine. They are introduced with the words:--"I will give a few condensed extracts from his summary of the main features of his proposals."

    Mr. Mills' scheme was proposed as a substitute for the workhouse, to be carried out by the guardians. My proposal, as I have distinctly stated, is for a national scheme.

    Allow me to thank Mr. Andreas Scheu for his excellent summary of the main points of my proposal. He may be interested to know that in "My Life" I have devoted nearly 20 pages to an account of my early association with the Owenites, and have given a pretty full account of Owen's marvellously successful work at New Lanark.

Alfred R. Wallace.
