I feed the quail and sparrows every winter keep nest boxes in orchard & now while I am writing this to you there quail in my front yard & garden Now my Dear Sir I have still another favour to ask of you. & that is how to make the arcinate of Lead I have the chemicals & did make it last season but have lost or misslaid the receipt or formulia I concluded your chemist or you would know if so please favour me with it & oblige
Resp Prof. D. Ducello
