Letter to James Cossar Ewart from Colonel George A. Oliphant, 02 June 1908

Identifier: Coll-14/9/14/18
Scope and Contents

Oliphant notes that Ewart requested the Przewalski's foal to be sent to the taxidermist Rowland Ward, but he trusts they will not have another mishap as there is only one foal this year. He reports that Ewart's third Przewalski's mare foaled that morning, as well as the Mongolian pony, but the offspring are all males. He asks if Ewart would consider carrying out the experiment further.
