Dear Sir
I do not know but
[pray agree?] about shipping
the giraffe. I have not
yet had an opportunity of
consulting our committeees
and cannot do so till the
1[0?]th Jnry - I would prefer
that you keep it for the [?]
if you can do so -
I will endeavor to see
Mr. [Pruyn?] within a few
days, but I feel pretty sure that
he will take no responsibility.
And we are to have a change of
state officers, or I could talk
with Comptroller Hopkins about
it. The incoming are strangers
to me -
Truly yours,
Over James Hall
