SOCIETY 
R. R. M. CARPENTER                 IN CARE OF

COLUMBUS AVENUE AND 77TH STREET 
NEW YORK. N. Y. 
June 29th, 1936 
Dear Sir: 
The first edition of "Records of North American Big Game" with

which you are no doubt familiar, was published in 1932 under the auspices

of the National Museum of Heads and Horns of the New York Zoological Sooi-

ety. It was the first work of its kind to be published in this country. 
After the publication of this book Mr. Prentiss N. Gray, who 
edited it, commenced gathering material for a second edition. Unfortu- 
nately he was killed in an untimely accident. A committee has been ap- 
pointed to carry on where Mr. Gray left off and to complete the gathering

of material and publish a second edition. 
The committee desires to receive data on specimens measuring 
up to or better than the standards specified on the enclosed sheet. 
Will you not cooperate with us by advising us whether you your- 
self have heads, not already recorded with Mr. Gray or this committee, 
which meet the requirements above referred to and by sending us the names

and addresses of owners of other heads which you believe will qualify. 
The standards of measurement that will qualify heads for in- 
clusion in the second edition will depend largely upon the number and 
size of heads registered with the committee. 
The work is sponsored by sportsmen in the interest of sports- 
men and science and is in no sense a commercial publication. 
If you desire further information please do not hesitate to 
call upon us and accept in advance our appreciation of your cooperation.

Very truly yours, 
MJ.OU L.L4 L
