From A. R. Wallace [19 June 1867]1
9, St. Mark’s Crescent | N.W. Wednesday. Dear Darwin
I am very sorry I was out when you called yesterday. I had just gone to the Zool. Gardens, and I met Sir C. Lyell who told me you were in Town.2
If you should have time to go to Bayswater I think you would be pleased to see the collections which I have displayed there in the form of an Exhibition (though the public will not go to see it.).3 If you can go with any friends I should like to meet you there, if you can appoint a time.
I am glad to find you continue in tolerable health.
Believe me | Yours very faithfully | Alfred R. Wallace—
Charles Darwin Esq.
What do you think of the Duke of Argyll’s Criticisms,4 and the more pretentious one in the last Number of the N. British Rev.?5
I have written a little article answering them both, but I do not yet know where to get it published.6

CD is invited to see ARW’s collections at Bayswater.
ARW has written an answer to the Duke of Argyll and North British Review criticisms.
