Text Appearing Before Image: ver before turned up! * In August, 1874, Miss Watts of London writes to Lewis Wright that, early in 1853 she senther first order for Light Brahmas to Dr. Bennett, and specified that the fowls must be single-combed. . . . This was objected to (in America) on the score that the single comb was notright. Sojoea-comb birds were sent her. This lady says she bred the so-called Chamberlin-Bennett stock, but found no Dark Brahmas until after 1862. when she crossed hers with birdsfrom Dr. Gwynnes stock; and which Bennett sent to Dr. Gwynne from my yards, years before!

(1853.) The above is an English picture of an early pair of Light Brahmas belongingto Miss E. Watts — author of the London Poultry Yard — which she im-ported from Dr. J. C. Bennett, in 1853. In 1874, she writes that Mr. Plaistedand Dr. B. selected all this stock bred by her, up to 1862, when she obtained apullet to cross with her own from Dr. Gwynnes importation from America ;and adds that about the same time when she first received hers from America, Mr. Baily, of Mount Street, London, received a pen of Dark Birds from Mr.Burnham, which were not exactly to her fancy, on account of their heavy color ;but they were very fine. In closing this article upon selection and mating the Brahmas, &c, for breed-ing, I ask the reader to compare the above drawing of Dr. Bennetts fowls of1853 with the picture of my light Gray Shanghaes of 1852, on the oppositepage. Both these engravings were drawn by the same European artist, fromlife.
