Y The Future of American Wildlife Lies in the Hands of Our Children Dear Thank you for your letter dated enclosing a remittance of $ in payment of the fees of children who wish material for bird study. We are forwarding the material under separate cover. In order to receive the magazine, Bird-Lore, a Junior Audubon Club must consist of 25 or MORE members. Perhaps you are in a position to enroll at least additional children and thus form a complete Junior Audubon Club. If so, and you will remit their fees (ten cents each) at once, we shall be glad to place your name on the free mailing list of BirdLore, the official organ of this Association, for the ensuing year; this magazine contains much material helpful to the teacher and interesting to both pupil and teacher. We cannot send this magazine to you free unless the Club contains 25 or MORE members. We recommend for your careful consideration the projects suggested in the reprint "Bird Study for Schools". In part icular we hope that you are able to take field trips, and that a majority of the children will undertake projects at home, such as the construction of bird baths, feeding stations and bird houses, the planting of shrubs and trees to at tract birds, et cetera. If you need bird wall charts, bird books or bird cards, we suggest you consult our price list. Will you send us the names and addresses of other teachers who might be interested in forming Junior Audubon Clubs? A list of all the teachers in your county would be welcome and helpful. Very truly yours, JOHN H. BAKER Executive Director.

(Copy) 907 Hennen Building, New Orleans, La.Mch.13,1901 New Orleans, La. My dear Sir: Your let.ter of March 8th addressed to the North Louisiana Land Co. stating that you are informed by the Register of the Land Office Timbalier Island has passed into our possession and speaking about protecting the birds, has been forwarded here. Will say that we have an office at 90? Hennen Building, and if you are interested in this matter we would be glad tc have you call upon us at any time. We boll.ght. alJ ... of. the prop.erty of the Atchafalaya Levee Board. We think it includes Timbalier Island and several others and about 110 miles or coast. We have not finished all of our abstracts yet. We are perfectly willing that the birds should be protected, e.nd would be perfectly willing to turn over anyTights that we have to be used for that purpose. Your letter was addressed to the No .Louisie.na Land Co., whose business heretofore has been in the North part of the State. As partners by the name of Wisner & Dresser we contracted fer the Atchafalaya Levee Board lands. We have paid the Levee Board all up for the lands, and are abstracting and listing them and taking deeds as fast s we can, but our work is not anywhere near completed. Will not write you a very long letter, but will confer with you upon the subject at any time that you may be pleased to call. We retu r n Mr.Dougherty's letter. Answering yours to N.La.Land Co. Very truly yours, Wisner & Dresser, By .J.M.Dresser.

Dutcher, New York City, Dear Sir:-Your letter to Mr. A.D.Barrow, Secretary of the Atchafalaya Basin Levee District, was referred to us, and will say that the situation is this: All of the coast marsh lands and islands on the coast that were granted by the United states to the state were granted by the State to the Atchafalaya Levee Board, and we lnve bought all of the landed proper ty Of the Atchafalaya Levee Board with subrogation of all their rights. W e are at work abstracting and listing the lands now. We own part of Timbalier Island and I don't b u t all of it. We own all of Last Island, Caillou and Wine Islands, and several others. The late Register of the State Land Office ke p t his matters in such shape that we do not know definitely about the whole _gf i t yet, but are at work on it. However, we are pErfectly willing to turn over to your society any rights that we have, to use for the purpose that you require them, the protecting of tl1e sea birds. We think they ought not to be disturbed during the nesting season. We are in f'u.11 sympat h y with the purJ)oses of your society, and you can depend upon us to co-operate with you. I think, if you would write an article and send to the "Times Democrat", the most influential paper in this City, that they would publish it and gladly aid in bringing the matter before the people, and try to create a sentiment which would result in a law being passed by the next Legis-lature to J)rotect the bir
