Letter to James Cossar Ewart from Russ and Winkler, 12 January 1905

Scope and Contents Russ and Winkler respond to Ewart's enquiry regarding the origin of the Russian foal skins now used extensively in Britain and elsewhere. They confirm that the animals began to be bred extensively after the demand for skins rose, and that they can be found in the wild near the region of the Baikal lake and Altai mountains.
