HARDLEY. TO MR. W. STODDARD— Sir,— In reply to your challenge which you have taken the trouble to advertise, I beg to say. that I am perfectly satisfied with the decesion of the Judges at the late show, and I may say that two of those gentlemen are personally unknown to myself.. If exhibitors are not content to leave the judging of their animals to the gentlemen appointed for that purpose, it were belter that they should withhold their exhibits altogether. However, as you appear to have taken this matter so much to heart, if you give me the £IOO, I shall be happy to let you have the first prize horse, you can then class them as you ? lease. —Yours truly, 34 EDWIN THOMAS.
