Our Fish, Flesh, Fowl, and Natural History Column [2/4]
Serial—Editorial, Spoof; Letter, Spoof
Natural History, Periodicals, Agriculture, Animal Husbandry, Horticulture
Continuing in the style of the first instalment, this includes letters and unhelpful editorial replies on natural historical subjects, many of which are prompted by the bizarre specimens (some living) that readers submit to the periodical. Specimens and topics include 'liquid bottled manure', 'the British Mastiff', a cat, and gardening suggestions for August.
