Letter (WCP14.14)


Parkstone, Dorset

June 23rd. 1891

My dear Will

I enclose you Mr. Hedge’s card. Tell him to take out your rotten tooth & put in a new one & send the account to me. He will remember seeing you before & spoke to him about you. You will probably have to go two or three times, as your gum will have to heal & get hard before the new tooth can be got in, so you had better go next Saturday, at 10 am.

I send you [2] cheque for £2.0.0. I hope you will bring home a good lot of work to do in the holidays or you will be miserable. Work in the morning, tennis or walks in the afternoon will conduce to health & happiness.

I enclose an amusing scrap.

Your affectionate Papa | Alfred R. Wallace [signature]
