Excerpt from book:74 CHAPTER III. EVIDENCE, BOTH POSITIVE AND NEGATIVE, OF THE SPARROW'S USEFULNESS IN AMERICA. In the very imperfect sketch which I have given of the sparrow's life in its American home, which is mainly based upon my own observations, I would be guilty of manifest injustice to my contemporaries who have written upon the subject, if I should omit to make mention of their writings and discoveries. Besides, I would be neglecting a duty which I owe as well to myself as to them. The value of confirmatory evidence cannot be adequately appreciated. The evidence which I have to offer, therefore, will be both of an affirmative and of a negative character. In the Annals of the Lyceum of Natural History for 1867, Mr. Lawrence has given a brief sketch of the sparrow's introduction, and of the benefits which had accrued therefrom to society up to the time of his writing. He says, "The pest of our shade trees and horrors of pedestrians (caterpillars of Ennomos subsig- naria) form part of the diet of this species." Dr. Charles Pickering, who had obviously given considerable attention to the study of the sparrow-question, in the Proceedings of the Boston Society for 1867, cites several authorities to show that these birds have been the enemies of mankind for more than 5000 years. At the period of the invention of
