Old World Buffalo

I borrow your admirable magazine from that wonderful institution, the United States Information Service Library, here in Cape Town. Each issue is crammed with articles that broaden one’s knowledge of the U.S.A., a country that I have yet to visit although that is a major ambition. However, I wish to add to Mr. Block’s “Hunting Buffalo” (April) by letting him know through you that in South Africa there are post offices at Buffalo Bay, Buffalo Flats (East London), Buffalo Pass Heights (East London), and Buffalo (East London, where there is also a Buffalo River, and by going to Afrikaans, Buffeljagsrivier). Maybe he will add these to his next Buffalo safari.
