The 22nd August 1878.

No. 911

George Perry Esq.

Town Clerk

City of Ballarat


I have the honor to inform you that your letter No. 379 dated 8th ultimo addressed to the Chairman of the Calcutta Municipality has been forwarded by him to me.

I submitted your letter to the Committee will be very glad to assist the proposed Zoological Gardens of Ballarat by forwarding Indian mammals and Birds in exchange for Australian species of mammals and birds.

The committee also decided to send at once the following animals:

viz: 2 camels, 2 sambar deer, 2 spotted deer and two hog deer and I was instructed to write to the Calcutta agent of the Peninsular and Oriental Steam Company to inform him that we intend to forward these animals to your gardens by the earliest opportunity.

I have done this but not yet received a reply.

I am,


Your obedient servant,

John Anderson

Honorary Secretary
