Forest Glen , Nairobi , British East Africa , June 30 , 1911. ] Vy dear Meltendorff We returned from our first safari , June 12. Mr. llaiuey has taken Forest Glen here for a year. He left for the north a few days ago and left me here to look after the place. He will be gone about three months after elephant. When he re'turns we are going on another lion hunt. We have thirty-three more dogs due at the coast July 12 , and I am going to Mombasa , to meet them. We had a great time and broke all records killing lions. I may not return to America with the others , am thinking of building a tannery and going into that business. It looks like a good thing. Mr. Rainey has instructed me to send you a lion skin with his com pliments. I will try and put in something with it in the way of a trophy. Am sending some pictures un der separate cover. Will let you know when the lion skin starts. With best wishes to Mrs. Mel- teudorff and the girls , I am , Very truly , E. Shelley. Mr. Shelley sent several pic tures of hunting scenes , wounded game , etc. , which are now on ex hibit at Chapman's. One picture shows the hunting party and nine ions. Eight of them had been killed in thirty minutes , a big re cord for even that big game coun try. Mr. Meltendorff supplied the party with several dogs and horses , and at the present time has ten head of horses in reserve for Mr. Rainey.
