Text Appearing Before Image: hen never had aught to do with naming the Brahma fowl.I always opposed this bald nonsense, and would never permit Dr. Ben-nett, Mr. Cornish, or Mr. Anybody to thus misname my fowls.

And I surelymade no statement, oral or written, in which Mr. Cornishs fowls were involved,where I was a witness more or less reliable, as Mr. Wright states ; be-cause his u Chittagongs or u Brahmapootras, or whatever he named them,never interfered with my Gray Shanghaes any more than did Dr. Ben-netts Wild East-India Fawn-colored Dorkings, at this same periodnotable.
