Original text on this topic:
The specimen examined is a young female that strayed into Chittagong in February 1869, when it was captured, and where it has remained till within the last few weeks. It has been brought to Calcutta by Mr. Jamrach of London, to whom I am indebted for my examination of this interesting animal. Mr. Jamrach has purchased it in the hope of being able to take it to London alive, where, if he succeeds in his endeavour, it will doubtless attract much interest, as no living example of this species, that I am aware of, has hitherto reacbed England. The uncertainty, however, of this enterprise induces me to forward to the Society these notes, together with an unquestionable representation of the external characters of this species.
