' \ \ \ l J Mrs. Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings Crose Creek Hawthorn, Florida Dear Mrs. Rawlings: Aransas National Wildlife Refuge uatwell, Texas March 29, 1 948 Thanks a lot for your interesting letter of March 18. I will write Dillard a s you suggest and will fo l low your advice on enclosing a typed questionnaire etc. We are not sure whet her t he pair in New Orleans a r e mal e or not. e have prevailed upon t h e peop l e there to m ove t h e m t o a larger enclosure bu t I still thi nk it is too co nfined. T h e presen t idea is to relEias e t he birds i n a semi-enclosed a ea w h e r e there is suitable n esting ha i tat. If w e are very lucky we might eventually get a Gul f Coast nesting record out of this. There a r e soi e absolutely a uthentic records of t he Whooping Cran e nesting in Loui iana., .many or th m prior to 1900 and one last recor d as late as 1939. T he story of what happened to t his last little colony of nesting birds is quite dr&IL.atic, but I am still gathering so m e o f t h e facts and so hav e not told it y et. RPA:rc ain t h anking \OU for your interest a n d assistance, Very cordially yours Robert P,. Allen Research Associate
