Letter to James Cossar Ewart from Cargill Gilston Knott, with enclosed letter to Knott from Alexander Seton Huth, 22 December 1915

Hagenbeck writes hoping that the three hybrids arrive safely in Hamburg. He also announces that he is happy with the amount offered to him for the young Przewalski's horse skin and skeleton, which Ewart is procuring for a friend. He will shortly send Ewart the skins of a Siberian Ibex for his museum. He states that he has not yet seen Salensky's monograph about the Przewalski's horse but will enquire about it.
Hurst requests a copy of Ewart's paper on the Development of the Horse. He has been 'soldiering' since August 1914 and has not had time to keep up with developments in experimental work.
Douglas agrees with Ewart that funding would not be forthcoming from the Development Commissioners at present. Although he is in favour of the Highland and Agricultural Society supporting Ewart's work, he fears that the Directors will not agree, as at present they are disinclined to spend the Society's money on purely scientific research. However, if Ewart puts in an application, he will do his best for it in the Committee.
Plumb asks Ewart for a copy of a paper which he presented to the Royal Society in 1902 on a new species of horse. He mentions that he has used lantern slides in his own lectures showing some of Ewart's work on telegony and regrets not introducing himself to Ewart at the Royal Agricultural Show at York in 1900. He mentions his own work in the instruction in breeds, breeding, feeding and management of domestic animals at Ohio State University.
Stewart states that he has corrected the proofs of his article 'A National Park for Scotland', to appear in the Nineteenth Century Magazine in April 1904 and gives Ewart a list of contacts which he requests him to contact regarding the article.
Stewart reports that the 'National Park' article was too late for the April edition of the Nineteenth Century magazine and will probably appear in the May edition.
