Oliphant writes about the birth of the first hybrid foal out of one of Ewart's mares, as he suspects that his first letter reporting this has gone missing. He wants to know whether Ewart wishes to take the experiment any further.
Delamarre states that he had read about Ewart's researches in hybridisation in a volume of La Revue Scientifique and was enclosing a photograph of an animal which was currently living in the zoological gardens of the Bois de Boulogne (photograph not present).
The company writes that it would be wise for Ewart to find out whether Falkiner wants 'the old type' of Soay sheep or the 'improved Soay-Siberian sheep' before proceeding with the arrangements for transporting the sheep.
Willey requests Ewart's views of his own cross-breeding experiments for an article which Willey plans to write about various types of hybrids.
Bryans writes regarding Ewart's article 'Zebras, Horses and Hybrids' which has prompted him to mention a supposed case of telegony between two dogs.
Smith states that she is returning some of the photographs which Ewart lent her for publication (photographs not present). She has placed an article about the zebra hybrids in The World's Work and will be preparing one for The Country Gentleman. She asks Ewart for further information about the zebrules, which she hears are also being bred in South Australia, and asks for permission to use more of Ewart's photographs.
Sexton encloses a photograph (not present) of a striped mouse dun pony and recalls seeing an unusually striped bay horse. She also mentions visiting Ewart to see his hybrids some years ago with the agricultural college.
Barrell enquires whether the two zebra hybrids Ewart has for sale are nicely marked and fit to work in trade, as his own mule is still fit for work.
Barrett enquires whether he might be able to purchase an animal from Ewart's stock of hybrids, which he is selling. He asks Ewart to advise on the most suitable animal and also enquires whether he knows of anyone who would be interested in purchasing a mule that he owns.
