From Alfred Russel Wallace 14 January 1
5, Westbourne Grove Terrace, W.
My dear Mr. Darwin
I am very sorry indeed to hear you are still in weak health.2 Have you ever tried mountain air. A residence at 2000 or 3000 ft. elevation is very invigorating.
I trust your family are now all in good health, & that you may be spared any anxiety on that score for some time—3 If you come to Town I shall hope to have the pleasure of seeing you—
I am now in much better health but find sudden changes of weather affect me very much bringing on ague & fever fits—4 I am now working a little but having fresh collections still arriving from Correspondents in the E. it is principally the drudgery of cleaning packing & arrangement.5
On the opposite page I give all the information I can about the Timor fossils so that you can send it entire to Dr. Falconer.6
With best wishes for the speedy recovery of your health | I remain | My dear Mr. Darwin | Yours very faithfully | Alfred R. Wallace
Charles Darwin Esq.
Is sending information about Timor fossils to be forwarded to Hugh Falconer.
