Skuggs Plush Grey SquirrelItem#: 363029
Benjamin Franklin was fond of small, furry creatures like squirrels, or skuggs as they were called. He once sent a ''fine large grey Squirrel'' from Philadelphia to London as a gift for his friend Georgiana Shipley. Alas, the first skugg escaped from his cage and was devoured by a dog. Franklin asked his wife Deborah to send Georgiana a second skugg. In a letter of thanks, Georgiana reported that her new friend grew ''fat and lively'' and enjoyed ''as much liberty as even a North American can desire.''
