Letter to James Cossar Ewart from Carl Hagenbeck (incomplete), 28 December 1901

Identifier: Coll-14/9/7/30

Scope and Contents

Hagenbeck states that the Przewalski's stallion and the Mongolian mare should be sent immediately to Leith, Edinburgh. He is concerned that lack of companionship for the Przewalski's horse may lead him to go off his food, so he suggests that Ewart send across to Hamburg a Shetland pony as companion on the journey. He provides information on the best conditions for looking after the stallion.

The latter part of the letter is not present.
