EXtraOt from Mr. Wallihan's letter to Mr. Talbot. 
"In reply to your letter of the 19th. will say that I do 
not recall the exact words used as to the numbers in the small 
herd of antelope that would not fight off coyotes. That would 
be a guess only. I was basing my statement on what frontiersmen 
had told me they had seen. 
I would think that a smaller bunch - say 10 or 15 - would 
be nearer the right size. 
I am of the opinion also that some epidemic disease 
kills off a lot of them. I saw two die within 24 hours on 
one photo trip and a cowboy who rode among them at that time 
told me that he saw dozens of carcasses and his conclusion was 
some epidemic. 
Kindly have Mr. Leopold correct the statement that I 
hunted with Roosevelt, as I never did. He might credit me 
as photographing game as that requires far more intimacy with 
it than hunting. But I do not want to claim that I hunted with 
Teddy when I did not. 
I should have liked to accompany him on his lion hunt near 
here, and the Chicago Tribune and New York Herald wired me to 
go with him, but I had no "invite" and I would not attempt to 
force my way with him. - had breakfast with him the morning he 
started out. 
There are a very few antelope left here, and on Northwest 
into Western or Southwestern Wyoming I am told they are quite 
plentiful yet."
