Sir:

As I have a mouse-coloured flying squirrel (not so large as a rat) and not noticing anything of the kind in your collection at the Botanical Gardens when I last visited them, the idea suggested itself to me that it would be an acceptable acquisition to your collection – If so, please let me know and I shall be happy to forward it to you,

Yours Respectfully

I have had it little more than a week, feeding it on bread soaked in milk with sugar, of which seems to be very fond.
