Letter (WCP800.972)


Frith Hill, Godalming.

July 6th. 1882

My dear Wright

I send you herewith Mr. Boyd Kinnear’s1 pamphlet on Ireland — & also his leaflet & Circular. His proposal seems to me eminently just, common-sense, and practical, and it has the great advantage that it can be carried into effect without legislation. Or put sufficient pressure on the government & it can be put into action at once by the government.

I send also by Bookpost another copy of my "Land Nationalisation" which [2] please hand to your friend the Bursar (I forget his name) from me.

I have to thank you and Mrs Wright for a most enjoyable visit to Dublin. Pray give my kind remembrances to your wife & thank her for her great kindness and hospitality.

Let me know when you are coming to Reigate. We shall be away I think in August & part of September. I think perhaps I left a 3 bladed knife behind me. If it should turn up please keep for me, or send by post.

Yours very faithfully | Alfred R. Wallace [signature]

John Boyd Kinnear, 1828-1920. Lawyer, writer and politician.
