Letter to James Cossar Ewart from William Thomas Calman, 23 April 1930

Identifier: Coll-14/9/36/5

Scope and Contents

Calman writes that Kinnear has handed over the 14 bottles of penguin embryos which Ewart has returned to the Museum. Calman asks Ewart to return the remaining seven bottles still in his possession so that the loan register can be updated, and suggests that, if he wishes, Ewart could remove a few sample feathers from the specimens before returning them to the Museum.
