Airmail letter, one and a half pages of text, 4to,fold mark, good condition. Kinloch thanks Hjalmer for informing him of the death of "Afstand", an elephant ("astounded by the story"), hoping "the full truth will 'out' at the final trial". He tries to clarify some facts, asking questions about where the tusks were found, had they been sawn off, was the job "professional" (sawn off length), with other technical points.
