NOU, Lawrence Bruner, Letter, 1905, Jan. 23

Lincoln, Nebr., Jan. 13, 1905.

Hastings, Nebr.
My Dear Sir:-
Yours of the 16th came duly to hand and was read with considerable interest, since I see that you are fully as much of a bird protectionist as I am myself. I certainly shall take much pleasure in doing what I can toward having our game laws as thoroughly modified as possible so as to rotect as nearly all of our birds as can be. We certainly will see that doves, plovers, etc. are protected in their breeding season and if possible that quails are protected entirely. But if this cannot be done, I am certain that the size of the bag will be limited, i. e. that the number of birds that can be shot by any person in a single day will be reduced. There is also an inclination among the legislators to prohibit the sale of guns entirely, which in itself, would be a step in the right direction.
Yours very truly,
