Letter to James Cossar Ewart from Alice Hayes, 04 November 1905

Identifier: Coll-14/9/11/40

Scope and Contents

Hayes writes that the translation Ewart has written to her about should not take long to complete, as most of it has been completed by her late husband. She asks if she should send the book for Ewart to complete. Hayes wonders what to do with her husband's favourite horse and asks Ewart to let her know if anyone would like to have it.

Hayes is referring to the book Prjevalsky's horse (Equus prejewalskii pol.) by W. Salensky. The English translation of the book was eventually published by Hurst and Blackett in 1907, with Orlando Charnock Bradley completing the work after Hayes' death in 1904. Ewart provided the introduction.
