Prof. Lawrence Bruner,
Lincoln, Nebraska.

Dear Prof. Bruner:
There appears to be a growing interest among our students in bird life and I think I shall subscribe to a bird magazine for use of the students and am writing to you to ask your advice as to what one to get. This magazine I want for beginners in ornithology and want it to be general popularity and not too elementary. I wish it to stimulate the scientific spirit among the pupils, at the same time a love of bird life. I will be grateful for your opinion.
Yours truly,
R.A. Cooley
