Letter to James Cossar Ewart from Colonel Alfred Keene, 13 August 1903

 Item
Identifier: Coll-14/9/9/84

Scope and Contents

Keene reports on the progress of the zebra hybrids who are being used in a Battry near Simla, India. He writes that the Indian government are complaining at the high price of zebras as opposed to mules, but Keene comments that the price would have been less had they bought the hybrids from Ewart in the first place. He asks if zebra/pony hybrids can produce their own offspring and if Ewart knows of any zebra/donkey hybrids. He asks if Ewart would be able to procure a zebra stallion, as the Indian government might be induced to purchase it.
