[[underlined]] Work of Taxidermists [[/underlined]]

Owing to Mr. Marshall's absence on account of sickness (since Jan. 1st), I am unable to state the amount of work done by him during December. Mr. Chas. J. Goodall and Mr. N. R. Wood were steadily employed on work for the bird exhibit at the World's Columbian Exposition, but the character of this work is so varied and complex that a detailed statement of its extent is impracticable.

Very respectfully yours,
