Letter to James Cossar Ewart from J.B Robertson, 18 November 1910

 Item
Identifier: Coll-14/9/16/35

Scope and Contents

Robertson writes that he had come to the same conclusion as Ewart that a slender horse played an important part in the ancestry of the English thoroughbred. He has compared various fossilised remains and concluded that although the shaft of the central portion of the large metacarpal bone is broad, the shapes of the first three phalanger are indicative of a slender race. He makes several observations on the significance of the metacarpals.
