       Dear Sir.

I am anxious to improve myself in taxidermy, with the view of following the art as a business. I write to you prompted by hope that I may be able to obtain in your employment, the training I desire.

       I am a young man,go on 21 years, german by birth

and fairly well educated. I learned the trade of fure cutter by my brother in law in Germany and have had mode _ rate experience in the preparation of taxidermists work. I am sure you would find me useful in many ways; and for the present a remuneration sufficient to pay my actual living expenses would satisfy me.

       Will you kindly say whether  you will consider the

proposal of engaging me? Respectfully Yours William Arnold. i/c J. Beman, Post Office. Elmira, N. Y.
