Letter to James Cossar Ewart from Henry Fairfield Osborn, 05 January 1918

Identifier: Coll-14/9/24/1

Scope and Contents

Osborn writes that he will shortly send Ewart a revision of the Equidae, which he calls 'a dry, exhausting piece of work, which is, however, absolutely essential for the more interesting monograph which I trust will follow one day.' He reports that the Celtic pony is now in full coat and is not typical. As it lacks many of the specific characters on which Ewart established the subspecies, he requests again the skeleton and skin of the type.
