Dear Sir,

I heard through Mr Langley at the Ballarat Zoo that five Rhesus monkeys belonging to the Ballarat Council are for sale. I would like to purchase two young monkeys, which I have already inspected. I would be prepared to offer £2525 £
550 £approx2009
1,125 $AUDapprox2009
500 shillings
6,000 pence
for the two. I have an A. Class license which entitles me to purchase Wild Animals.

Yours faithfully

D. Ashton
