Mrs. H. J. Nice


Huntington Pa., Feb 15, 1890
Dear Sir: - I received dog and your letter O.K. some time ago. I am well pleased with her and think she is a good specimen, only she seems playful for a dog of 14 months. I have no lops nor could I get you any. This town never had any lop-eared rabbits, and no fancy pigens., until I introduced eight or ten breeds, among which a very fine strain of white fans, crested and booted, smooth heads and plain legs. I have no more birds at present to trade, but can give you a bargain on several pair of fans soon. Can tell you more about them in a few days.
