Letter to James Cossar Ewart from Carl Hagenbeck (incomplete), 28 December 1901

 Item
Identifier: Coll-14/9/7/30
Scope and Contents Hagenbeck states that the Przewalski's stallion and the Mongolian mare should be sent immediately to Leith, Edinburgh.

He provides information on the best conditions for looking after the stallion.

The latter part of the letter is not present.

Identifier: Coll-14/9/14/18
