[Page 8] markets this morning to see how many larks were at the poulterers and I saw several hundreds. The poulterers told me that there were not so many in the markets now as there were during the first week after the beginning of the closed season. I suppose they are being thinned out. The poulteres say, the Germans and French are particularly fond of the birds. Please pardon my addressing you and troubling you in these matters but I do love the meadow larks and I do love California and the little I can do is at my countries service. C. H.
