Mr Perry

Dear Sir,

I have just been thinking that it is better for me to inform you in time that the kangaroo which we received from Clunes Hospital is a most-dangerous brute, and anyone coming within reach of him man or lad even with a stick in hand I experienced this last-Saturday having what I thought a stick or rather batten of some considerable strength he stuck me up and to work I had to go after two rounds the batten gave way over his head without he being the least bit daunted. I was only glad to clear out - I would advise the Council to put it away for it is most-dangerous.


Yours truly

G Longley
