Letter to James Cossar Ewart from Henry Fairfield Osborn, 28 January 1913

Identifier: Coll-14/9/19/6

Scope and Contents

Osborn writes that the Museum hopes to purchase the 'Celtic' pony later that year. They wish to have him in his winter coat so that the skin could be mounted separately from the skeleton, and he asks advice on what time of the year to purchase him. He compliments Ewart on the progress he is making with the breeding of domesticated animals.
