Scope and Content

Letter to James Cossar Ewart from Theo DA Cockerell regarding the notes that he had sent about equus scotti, and the apparent differences between this species and equus caballus, an opinion he has now had to alter in the light of information supplied by James W Gidley. Cockerell doubts whether the bones of any species of equus would indicate from which hemisphere it originated.
