My dear Wallace

I am very glad that you will attend, as it seems to me an occasion when every man of science should help another. You will be able to return at night, as Lankester will be the first man ballotted[sic] for. I hope you are getting nearly to the end of your work.

Yours very sincerely | Ch. Darwin [signature]
