5686. NATURAL HISTORY, Wild sheep.—

I have never known to what family
you ascribed the Wild Sheep, or Fleecy Goat,
as Governor Lewis called it, or the Potiotrajos,
if its name must be Greek. He gave
me a skin, but I know he carried a more perfect
one, with the horns on, to Mr. Peale;
and if I recollect well those horns, they, with
the fleece, would induce one to suspect it to
be the Lama, or at least a Lamæ affinis. I
will thank you to inform me what you determine
it to be.—
To Dr. Wistar. Washington ed. v, 218.
(W. 1807)
