Hagenbeck thanks Ewart for sending the photographs of 'Remus' and a black hybrid mare, along with an estimated cost for the pair. He asks if Ewart could send him the stallion which is for Henry Fairfield Osborn in New York, as he wishes to combine the shipping with some animals of his own. He adds that he now has a pair of Chapman's zebras, which he is sending from Hamburg to India. He would like to negotiate the sale of two Java ponies to Ewart in exchange for a stallion and two Shetland ponies.
