Mr. Editor,—I would respectfully solicit a call from you to my establishment, (5 Broad street,) where you will have an opportunity of seeing a Turtle of rather a singular description. It was caught by a gentleman, at St. Simons Island, Geo., and sent on here as a curiosity; it is esteemed there as a great delicacy. Its shell is perfectly soft, and the formation of the head is worth noticing, differing entirely from the generality of turtles. It will remain here for a time, for exhibition, after which it will be killed, and served up in my usual superior style.
I invite you with the public, to witness this stranger to our market.
