Letter from Theodore Roosevelt to Hesketh Vernon Hesketh Prichard
Theodore Roosevelt thanks Hesketh Vernon Hesketh Prichard for the interesting letters and photograph. Roosevelt is interested in Prichard's statement that the "tame barrenground Norwegian deer interbred freely with the woodland wild deer of Newfoundland at St. Anthony." Roosevelt writes this bears out his belief that "caribou is a genus which is in process of differentiation inter-species." Roosevelt is interested in the number of deer in Quebec versus Labrador and the new sub-series of West Coast eland, a pygmy form, found off the West Coast of Africa.
