Letter to James Cossar Ewart from Dorothy Thursby-Pelham, 12 May [1922]

Identifier: Coll-14/9/28/8
Scope and Contents Thursby-Pelham writes that she would happily let Ewart use her drawings for his work on the Antarctic Penguin, but that strictly speaking they are the property of Mrs Assheton, as Thursby-Pelham drew them whilst working as Dr Assheton's assistant. Mrs Assheton has written to Harmer to grant the required permission. She offers Ewart her collection of bird embryos which she acquired for the purpose of comparison with the penguins.

Letter to James Cossar Ewart from Ernest William MacBride, [c. 02 January 1916]

Identifier: Coll-14/9/22/2
Scope and Contents

MacBride thanks Ewart for his telegram with the details he needed about Darbishire for his obituary, which he has sent to Nature. He is delighted with Ewart's work on the embryology of the horse, and believes that 'it is only by slow painstaking work of this kind that a real science of Comparative Embryology will ever be built up.' He is glad that Ewart gives no countenance to the 'crook theories' about the layers of the embryo.

The letter is undated.

Letter to James Cossar Ewart from E.W Morse, 19 December 1911

Identifier: Coll-14/9/17/81
Scope and Contents Morse writes that the report containing Ewart's lectures will be ready shortly, and he wishes to know how many separates of Ewart's article he would like to have for distribution. He will be unable to do anything concerning the distribution of breeds in India so he hopes Ewart will, and also that Ewart will make a large collection of skulls from India in adult and embryonic forms. Ewart would also need someone in India to measure all the breeds, and to have a uniform system of measuring. He...

Letter to James Cossar Ewart from J.B Robertson, 15 January 1916

Identifier: Coll-14/9/22/12
Scope and Contents

Robertson comments on Ewart's paper on the development of the horse, particularly on the 'three-toed phase' in early embryonic life. He wonders whether there is any appreciable difference between the embryo of an Arab or thoroughbred mare and a Shire. He imagines that the three-toed stage would persist for two or three days or longer in the case of heavy, coarse breeds.
