On the trail of the onager

 

Sir,– On January 8th I had my first sighting this year of the rare Asian wild ass, the onager (Simplex 16767). Unfortunately this wild animal is now so well known because of its frequent appearance in your newspaper that it has lost its mystique.

Could you change it for something more exotic please? – Yours, etc,
