Mr. Aldo Leopold, Garie Survey, 421 Chemistry Building, Madison, Wisconsin. Dear Mr. Leopold: I have your letter of December 12th in regard to data on winter killings of quail in Massachusetts and New England. I shall try to get this material together for you, but would suggest also that you write to Dr. John C. Phillips, President, Massachusetts Fish & Game Protective Association, 41 Mount Vernon Street, Boston, for what information he can supply you on the same supject. Of course, you are familiar with Dr. Phillips. Two years ago he completed a survey of the records of wild birds introduced on planted in North America. The information was published several years later, April 1928, as Technical Bulletin No. 61, Bureau of Biological Survey. In getting this information, Dr. Phillips doubtless re- freshed his memory or added to his records regarding the interstate shipment of birds, particularly quail from the South to New England. Also a number of years ago, Dr. Phil- lips made a careful study of the plumage of bobwhite quail and published a little circular on the subject, with a place showing the influence of Southern stock on the plumage of our native birds. I am sure that Dr. Phillips can give you much more information than I can on the subject. However, I will be very glad to give you what information I have 3, "O yOu laser. ild suggest also that you write to Mr. Charles ancaster Theatre, Lancaster Street, Boston, Ration on the dates and approximate numbers iail imported from the South to Massachusetts. .k was a very active officer in the Massachu- Fish and Game Protective Association some ;y or twenty-five years ago, and I believe .harge of the purchase and distribution of iern quail here.
