A description of the rules, jury, participants, and horses on exhibit, including those European studs of the region, including Babolna, Radautz, Weil, plus private breeders of Europe. The author also toured the well-known European studs, which he detailed. He was appreciative of the Arabians he saw, although it is clear he was seeing them through the lens of an English military officer.

The Sultan's Gift to General Grant, Frank Leslie's Illustrated Newspaper

Information about the arrival in America of President Gen. U.S. Grant's gift horses from the Ottoman Sultan, *Leopard and *Linden Tree (named here as Djeytan and Missirli, respectively). Strain and origin may not be correct. The horses arrived on May 28, 1879.

"They are six and seven years old, of an even height, fifteen hands high, with a coat that is singularly delicate and as soft as velvet; white, silken tail reaching to the ground; and a mane that is wavy but not long. The heads are rather small, but the faces have an intelligent expression. They have large, soft and lustrous black eyes; small, well-set, restless ears; and in the the distended nostrils the finest Arabian blood is shown. They have a gentle disposition, and can be approached and petted like children."
