From J. B. Dunbar-Brander   7 December [1881]

From J. B. Dunbar-Brander   [before 9 July 1873]


Offers different explanations [from CD’s in Expression] for movements of dogs after voiding, and for their turning around before lying down.

CD is also wrong in saying hares do not cry except when they suffer.
