Letter from Theodore Roosevelt to John Burroughs

Description:

John Burroughs's letter has raised some doubt in President Roosevelt regarding his sighting of a small flock of passenger pigeons. However, he saw around a dozen pigeons, both in the air and perched on a tree, with a "characteristically pigeon like attitude." The other possibility is doves but the birds Roosevelt saw were larger and in a flock. He will write and see if there were other sightings.
