Letter to James Cossar Ewart from Charles Hose, 11 February 1904

Identifier: Coll-14/9/10/13

Scope and Contents

Hose writes from Baram, Sarawak, to say that he has managed to obtain another skull of a pony which is said to have come from Sulu but which he thinks is a Celebes due to its size. He is interested to see how it will compare with the skull of the pony Professor Haddon brought back for Ewart and the skull of the Javan pony. He sees no difference between the Borneo and the Sulu ponies, believing that all the animals which are enclosed and captured from time to time are descended from Sulus. He makes some comments about the Borneans' treatment of animals and writes that he will send the skull to Ewart with Haddon.
