Taken from the archives of the Mayor’s office in New York city, Mr. William Hornaday write to assure the mayor that the matter of the pygmy on display at the zoo is not how rumor would have it.

“…we have not heard of a single person who has in any manner criticized my action in placing Dr. Verner’s very interesting little African where the people of New York may see him without annoyance or discomfort to him…”

very amusing incident indeed…
