Grant Allen to W.T. Stead

(November 20, 188?)

Villa du Palmiers, Mustapha Superieur Algers Algeria. Novr. 20th [188?]

My Dear Mr Stead,

You will perceive from my address that I am in the wilds of Africa – or if not in the wilds, then in the… [illegible] …anyhow. I am awfully sorry I couldn’t call to see you before leaving England, nor even… [illegible] …your kind enquiry about the Life of Darwin; but the fact is I was quite seriously ill for the last ten days or so of my stay at home, and I only got up from bed to rush away here to Algeria. Happily the bright sunshine of the Dark Continent has now set me up, and I am quite myself again. I now send you off by this post the two articles on the gospel according to Darwin, as well as a little Algerian sketch, the latter of which I should be glad if you could publish anonymously, though I do not expressly stipulate for it. I don’t think you need send proofs. You shall hear from me again from time to time, and if you have a book occasionally that could stand the delay of three days’ post, I should be glad to have a look at it. In haste by proxy,

Yours very sincerely,

Grant Allen.
