Dear friend Mr. Muir
I thank you very much for your letter to me, on the meadow larks and it has assisted very much in our efforts to save the singing birds of California. The letter was read before the Sportsmen’s Convention where I think it did better work than thing else. I suppose you have read in the newspapers that the Sportsmen’s Convention has recommended the complete prohibition of the slaughter of singing and insectivorous birds. Again
"thanking you for your noble letter I remain
Your sincere friend
