Letter to James Cossar Ewart from Sir Claud Alexander, 01 September 1911

 Item
Identifier: Coll-14/9/17/49
Scope and Contents Alexander writes that he will visit the clouded leopard when in London and complains at the Zoo's ignorance when it comes to curing dysentery and diarrhoea in cats. He suggests that if Ewart wishes him to do anything he should inform the authorities at the Zoo. The Przewalski's colt is doing well although Alexander does not think he has served any mares yet.
