I am on my return in receipt of your letter of June 18 last -

Re Great Bustard I had not thought of parting with it as it would be a pity to break up my collection which now amounts to 1500 British killed specimen.

If I did anything I should dispose of them as a whole about 340 cases - but this I suppose would be to [sic] great a number for you to entertain.

I am Sir
Yours very [word illegible]
Edward Hart F.Z.S.

To Lt Genl Pitt Rivers
