A Wallace Letter

    The following letter, dated March 30, 1900, is from Wallace to Samuel Henshaw (1852-1941), an American entomologist who worked at the Museum of Comparative Zoology at Harvard. It apparently concerns some photographs Henshaw supplied to Wallace for use in his book Studies Scientific and Social, which came out later that year. Note the characteristic closing words and fine sweeping signature. My thanks to the owner of this previously unpublished and unknown item, a Québec City geologist, for generously granting permission to display it.
