Description: 2 pages, 12.5 x 8 inches, no place, December 7, 1826. In this somewhat quirky letter, he writes to a friend who has sent him a deformed apple that resembles a chicken, in part: "...This production of nature puts the beholder in mind, from its size and figure of a chicken coming forth from its native eggshell. Perhaps no such anomaly has occurred before..." Signed "Samuel L. Mitchell." Natural folds; faint ink bleeding. Very good(-) condition.

Comments: Mitchell, an American physician, botanist, politician, and promoter of science, was appointed in 1788 one of the commissioners to negotiate with the six nations for the purchase of lands in Western New York.
