Letter to James Cossar Ewart from Thomas H. Dale, 06 March 1904

Identifier: Coll-14/9/10/28

Scope and Contents

Dale, writing from South Africa, enquires about Ewart's zebra hybrids and questions whether they 'are not the transport animal of the future', particularly with regard to South Africa. He states his intention to induce the Department of Agriculture of the colony in the Transvaal to experiment with different zebra hybrids and would be glad of any advice Ewart can give. He asks if Ewart can send him a replacement copy of the illustrated catalogue for the York Agricultural Show (1900). He asks permission to use some illustrations from Ewart's works in an article he is writing for the Transvaal Government Agricultural Journal.
