Elwes thanks Ewart for his interesting paper and provides some suggested corrections. He asks for Ewart's help in revising some parts of his catalogue and confirms arrangements for transporting the ewes to Cheltenham.
Catchpole enquires whether copies of Ewart's pamphlet 'A critical period in the development of the horse' are still available, as he is working on problems surrounding the appearance during early pregnancy of sex hormones in the blood stream of the mare.
Turner writes that he is sending Ewart two papers with Turner's articles on hybrids (not present). He also enquires whether there are any photographs yet of the new foal hybrid, and if he could reproduce them.
Forsyth thanks Ewart for sending him 'The Multiple Origin of Horses and Ponies', which Forsyth says will form the first part of the report which he proposes to bring out the Congested District Board. He writes that he has written to Tullibardine offering to visit Atholl.
Forsyth writes that he has sent on the draft 'Sire and Service of Mares' from 1906 to Mackintosh and would be glad of any rough notes on the Monkstadt ponies (the experimental farm of the Congested Districts Board). The back of the letter contains notes in Ewart's hand on a list of names to whom he has sent his 'Tarpan' paper (possibly 'The Tarpan and its Relationship with Wild and Domestic Horses').
Letter is undated but likely to be from the year 1905.
Ritchie provides details about a paper he has seen in Nature concerning the moulting of the Hoatzin bird from down into feathers. He wonders whether Ewart should try to obtain a loan of the specimens or a sample of the down for examination.
Wilson enquires if Ewart still has a paper which Wilson loaned to him, Thomas McKenny Hughes' The Evolution of British Cattle (1894), as he would like to use it for some slides he is preparing.
Lucas enquires on behalf of Henry Fairfield Osborn whether Ewart has a copy of his (Ewart's) paper 'The Development of the Skeleton of the Limbs of the Horse' which appeared in the Journal of Anatomy and Physiology, as Osborn has misplaced his. Lucas also requests that Ewart informs Osborn whether more than two parts were ever published.
Jessen asks Ewart to clarify his term 'the Norse horse' in his essay 'The Multiple Origins of Horses and Ponies' by confirming whether it means the Norwegian horse or the Norman horse.
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.
