[3]that if your literary work is like the work of a glacier, or of the mills of the Gods, in point of speed, the likeness is complete in that it is exceeding fine and entirely irresistible. One inch a day of such achievement is all that ought to be expected of any man or glacier.I thank you in the name of all bird lovers for what you have written and what you are going to write in help of our helpless little winged citizens. A few lines even, from you, interpolated in your other writings, would, I am sure, influence those beyond the range of the Audubon Societies and move to prayer, for forgiveness or light, those who have come to scoff at our denunciations.With thanks again from us both for the delightful volume, and with cordial regards from us both, I am, as ever,your sincere admirer,Juliette A. Owen.
