Identifier: Coll-14/9/3/9

Scope and Contents

Tegetmeier thanks Ewart for his letter and adds that he would like to publish the photograph of the 'foal' at an appropriate time. He also suggests he could easily procure photographs or drawings of a Somali ass and a young Burchell zebra at the zoo, since those of Lady Valerie Meux are not so readily obtainable.

Biographical / Historical

Tegetmeier is probably referring to those zebras kept by Lady Meux to draw her phaeton around London, a spectacle for which she became famous.
