[page 3] For the larks, as they were requested to do, last year by the Committee from the Sportsmen’s Convention. To my great joy, I found the following ordinance of the Board “Order No. 2765. Section I. Every person who, in the City and County of San Francisco, State of California, shall between the first day of March and the first day of October of each year, buy or sell, or offer for sale, or have in his possession, any red-breasted robbing, or any brush robin or meadow lark shall be guilty of a misdemeanor. “Section 2. This order shall take effect, and be in force from and after its passage. Board of Supervisors, San Francisco May 28, 1894.” +++++
