Osborn states that he has already obtained a photograph of the Przewalski's colts and hopes that the Duke of Bedford will take some enlarged photographs showing their development, and also a watercolour painting showing the colour changes in their coats. He hopes that Ewart will put his views of the Mongolian pony down in a book. Many of the dun striped variety are to be found in Texas and Mexico. He also asks to be informed if a suitable Shetland pony comes on to the market, and would be very grateful to receive any examples of foetal limbs and skulls from the age of two months onwards.
