Written on the accompanying envelope, "These two pictures show Aldo Leopold in characteristic poses on that 140-acre farm on the Wisconsin River, a weekend retreat for the Professor of Wildlife Management, Wisconsin U. In one he's shown inspecting a young white pine tree, and the other about to embark on an inspection and bird-watching tour. The cane had a pointed end for probing purposes. When purchased it was a very much run-down farm with fertility near exhaustion. Every spring for 18 years planted 2000 trees. Now fast reaching its original forested aspect."
