Daly writes regarding Ewart's recent request in the Veterinarian for notes and photographs of zebra skins. He explains that among the tame Burchell's zebras running around at Cecil Rhodes' home near Rondebosch, there is a mare with very unusual markings. He suggests photographing the animal for Ewart if he is interested.
Cecil states that he has been to the Zoo to inspect the 'Kitchener hybrid', which he goes on to describe.
Lydekker asks Ewart for a photograph of his Burchell's zebra 'Matopo' and the colt 'Romulus', with permission to reproduce them. The top of the letter is annotated in Ewart's hand 'Sent 3 photos 26 September 1911.'
Tegetmeier thanks Ewart for his article on zebra mule hybrids. He also asks Ewart for a photograph of the hybrid for publication (in The Field newspaper, which Tegetmeier edits) and congratulates Ewart on his 'satisfactory experiment both from a scientific and economic point of view.' Tegetmeier states that he regards the zebra mule as being of great importance as all the other Burchell zebra hybrids he has seen were hinnies or jennets.
Tegetmeier writes that he encloses a photograph (not present) of Sir Walter Gilbey's picture by George Stubbs of the first zebra introduced into England. He hopes to receive early news of Ewart's experiments in telegony. He also offers to show him a photograph of the hind quarters of five Burchell zebras in a stable.
Tegetmeier replies to Ewart's request for photgraphs of zebras, and enclosing a photograph of the hind quarters of the Burchells zebra and one of Lord Rothschild driving his team of three zebras (photographs not present).
Tegetmeier thanks Ewart for his letter and adds that he would like to publish the photograph of the 'foal' at an appropriate time. He also suggests he could easily procure photographs or drawings of a Somali ass and a young Burchell zebra at the zoo, since those of Lady Valerie Meux are not so readily obtainable.
Le Souef describes the cross-bred zebra that the Royal Melbourne Zoological Gardens have in their care. It is the product of a Burchell's zebra and white donkey, and is four years old. He goes on to give a physical description of the foal, and writes that he is enclosing photos of the specimens (not present).
This photograph is likely to date from around the time of The Penycuik Experiments, although the image does not appear in that work.
