Scope and Contents

Ridgeway thanks Ewart for the papers he sent him. He concurs that the typical striped Norwegian pony was rare in Scandinavia in the 11th century, and that they are mentioned in the sagas. He states that he has now mapped out the entire historical evidence for horses in Europe and that his book is now ready to go to press after some complications with the publishers. He congratulates Ewart on the information about the Scottish ponies with the striped face and for his 'good news from the Faroe Isles'. He says he hopes to meet Ewart soon in Southport.
