From Alfred Russel Wallace,
Old Orchard, Broadstone, Dorset.
June 30, 1913.

Dear Mrs. Farrell:

    You may quote me as much as you like, as being A STRONG Anti-Vaccinator, and every kind of blood-poisoning and polluting — but NOT as a Vice-President of your Congress — which does inevitably involve SOME responsibility, and a sure increase of correspondence, which is far too great already.

Yours very truly,
(Signed) Alfred R. Wallace.
