OF DANA, DOGS, BIRDS, etc.

One of historys footnotes re William S. Dana (it was in his obit) speaks about the game preserve he established on his property in Mastic. While going through my files seeing if I had the name of his bird dog, I came across this letter that I found some time ago in the Floyd Estate Archives. It's from " More Game Birds In America" an organization that might be familiar to the regular Knappsters out there. If not it should be familiar to some Ducks Unlimited members who are all over the world. Although I don't know if Dana bred his own bird dogs , he may well have, or if Claire or Willis Penney told him where to go get a good one.....we know where he got his birds from........ 580 Fifth Ave.... NYC.... If that address rings a bell it should too .
