Few of the items in the Museum were of Manx interest. Wallace announced the early publication of a further Catalogue, but no copy is known to exist. The Museum closed on 5th February, 1842. Extract from " Manx Liberal," 2nd January, 1842 : "Whether want of success is to be attributed to the poverty of the collection, containing as it does only 7,000 specimens, or to the state of information and intellectual culture in the Island, he presumes not to judge." Wallace brought the greater part of his collection to Distington. See also " Manx Liberal," 12th December, 1840.

Accompanying this printed circular is an autograph letter signed by Cumming, and addressed to the Rev. William Kermode (father of P. M. C. Kermode), asking for his interest in the project.
