Brand informs Ewart that he has recently returned from Egypt hoping to call upon Professor Wallace, who would have introduced them. He writes that he has photographs which he took on the Aboukir Company's mule breeding farm near Alexandria of a mare with twin horse and mule foals. He comments that this must be a very rare instance of 'double conception' and says he would be happy to show Ewart the photographs.
