Dear Sir,

I shall be obliged if you will read my (enclosed) programme for the forthcoming issue of the Agnostic Annual. I am greatly desirous that you should contribute a paper (say, from three to five pages, or 1000 to 2500 words) to the section in which I have ventured to include your name. The honorarium would be a guinea a page, & I should like the MS. by the 15th of September.

May I beg of you to make a special effort to accede to my request? My aim, as you probably know, is to assist, in so far as I am able, in popularising cultivated liberal thought, & a contribution from your pen, even if brief, would || be invaluable in enabling me achieve my object.

Faithfully yours,

Charles A. Watts.

Professor Ernst Haeckel
