          Dear Aldo: 
 
          Some years ago the late John P. Bird of LaCrosse sent 
          me the inclosed letters and pages from his shooting 
          journal. I was wondering if they may contain material 
          that you may care to use in some of your future treatisesý

          on hunting practices and conservation history. To my 
          knowledge, I never met Mr. Bird, and my correspondence 
          with him was very limited, but since you mention his 
          name in your Game Survey I assume that you knew him. 
          Aside from the quite pathetic personal digressions in 
          his letters, you may find them of considerable interest. 
 
          I think that I am justified in sending this material to 
          you, for Itm sure that I will never find occasion to do 
          anything with it, and if it has historical value I would 
          like to place it in appreciative hands. 
 
                                      Sincerely, 
 
 
          INC *                       Paul L. Errington
