Abstract: A rough draft of Alfred Russel Wallace's famous "Sarawak law" paper (1855) has been discovered. A full transcript is provided comparing it to the published text. The implications for Wallace's scientific writing practices for this and, by implication, his historic Ternate essay (1858) are discussed.
