Letter to James Cossar Ewart from C.L Thylor, 16 August 1900

Identifier: Coll-14/9/6/24

Scope and Contents

Thylor states that he will gladly visit Ewart to view his hybrids. He supplies him with the addresses of several military men who he believes may be able to give him the information he requires regarding the use of horses, and in particular hybrids, in military action. Thylor proffers the opinion that the hybrids, because of their conspicuous stripes, may not be suited to military work in the field, though they would be suited to ambulance work.
