Letter to James Cossar Ewart from J.B Robertson, 26 November 1910

 Item
Identifier: Coll-14/9/16/42

Scope and Contents

Robertson writes that he is enclosing a reply to Professor Wilson which he has sent to be printed in Nature (reply not present). He does not see why Wilson considers himself superior in questions relating to the pigmentary character of the Equidae, as Robertson has noticed many errors in Wilson's own work in his paper on coat colour now before the Royal Dublin Society.
