B. Wheelock, who has been sent out to the Coast by A. C. McClurg & Co., of Chicago, to write a book on the California Birds. Mr. F. G. Browne, the head of the publishing department in that great house, is a warm personal friend of mine arid is very deeply interested in getting out first-class work. They are reaching much harder for really substantial and worthy books than for mere peddlers. He has wanted for a long time to have a first-class book on California Birds.
