Lincoln, Nebr. Jan.7, 1903.
Mr. A. O. Ball,

Kalton, Utah.
My Dear Sir:-

Your favor of Jan. 5th addressed to the postmaster of this city has been handed to us for reply.

There are only a few individuals in the state of Nebraska who are doing anything privately in the way of building up a collection of birds; but quite a number of persons are interested in this kind of work in connection with some institution of learning. In fact, our game laws prevent the making of private bird collections without some special permit.

We have an organization of persons who are interested in bird studies which numbers about 150 members. This is called the Nebraska Ornithologist’s Union.
Your very truly,
