The Darwin connection

Picture 9 of 9

This diary entry is one of the many records Wallace made throughout his scientific endeavours: NB The MSS. of my Paper sent to Darwin and printed in the Journal of the Linnean Society, was not returned to me, and seems to be lost. The proofs with the MSS. were perhaps sent to Sir Charles Lyell, or to the secretary of the Linn. Soc. & may some day be found. It was written on their foreign note paper. Alfred R.
