Letter to James Cossar Ewart from Carl Hagenbeck, 27 November 1902

 Item
Identifier: Coll-14/9/8/97
Scope and Contents Hagenbeck offers Ewart £100 for the three hybrids he is selling. He offers Ewart a young Przewalski's horse skin and skeleton. He also has in his possession the skins of some Siberian Ibex which he suggests might be fitting for Ewart's 'museum' (presumably the Natural History collections at the University of Edinburgh). Hagenbeck also mentions that he had bad luck with Ewart's zebra 'Matopo', who was returned to him by a buyer due to a lung condition.
