                jb  I  r $100 we cu     merely coleot from te sevral state

       the best inomation atvailpble (it would be of spotty quality) am~
the 
       original distributions would have to be ottd. 
 
                . For 4600 a st4ent seuld give the jb a year, include 
       originl bs as well as onses of aace or rereat            t b  (let

to 
       have a sale value as msarates or as a bulletin. It w d incud a 
       series of articels.

              Dear Doctor Leopold: 
 
              I have passed your letter of February 18 around to 
              various members of our staff, and they all expressed 
              interest in the possibility of one of your students 
              doing a game distribution map for us, which might 
              cover the United States, or at least the thirteen 
              midwestern states and New York and Pennsylvania. 
 
              Approximately, what would be the cost of having such 
              a map prepared?   We would, of course, want to pay 
              the student you selected according to the scale that 
              is customary in your department. 
 
              If you would be so kind as to let me know whether or 
              not, in six months or so, we might expect an accurate 
              game distribution map of the territories we have men- 
              tioned, and just what the cost to us would be, I shall 
              hasten to get a final decision from various members 
              of the Successful Farming staff. 
 
              Believe me, we appreciate your co-operation.
