Scope and Contents Heape offers advice on how to compose a scheme of recording the following data from experiments: details and date of service of mare, date of birth of the foal, in conjunction with the number of times the mare was served. This information might indicate any retardation of ovulation, or any hindrance to the passage of sperm into the uterus.

Dates: 22 June 1899

Dates: 24 May 1897
Scope and Contents Blunt lists 20 thoroughbred arab foals that he has bred at his horse farm and would like to offer one as a gift to Ewart. It has strong zebra markings and Blunt believes it would prove useful for Ewart's experiments.
Dates: 21 August 1898
Scope and Contents Tegetmeier thanks Ewart for his letter and adds that he would like to publish the photograph of the 'foal' at an appropriate time.

Dates: 27 July 1897
Scope and Contents Tegetmeier enquires whether Ewart could send him a photograph of the newly arrived offspring, and states that he wishes to reproduce photographs of the mare, the two offspring and the arab horse as these 'would make an admirable set' (presumably for publication in The Field).
