Letter to James Cossar Ewart from Charles Dawson, [c. 13 September 1915]

 Item
Identifier: Coll-14/9/21/16
Scope and Contents Dawson follows up his letter regarding the horned 'zebra' horse, which he has been told is now 'somewhere in France'. He has made arrangements for its head to be sent to him if it should die. He will shortly be in Edinburgh and wishes to see the horse skull Ewart mentions which seems to bear similar horn-like features. He will also bring some new pieces of Eoanthropus skull from near Piltdown for Ewart to see.

The letter is undated.
