Dear to whom it may concern,

My name is Kelsey Heck and I am a research assistant for Professor Eric Zuelow at the University of New England. He is currently completing a book about the history of modern tourism that will be published by Palgrave next year and we are tracking down images to illustrate various elements of the text.

I am writing to enquire about the Wealthy English big game hunter in India photograph which I located on your website. Do you own the copyright or know who does? Any information will be helpful.

Thank you for your time and consideration. I look forward to hearing from you.


Kelsey Heck
