Guillaume Lambert has published excerpts of a precious 1866 letter from Emir Abd al-Qader al-Jazairi to French Army General Eugene Daumas about the asil Arabian Horse and its living conditions of French USCAR website . It is in French but worth translating through Google Translate and reading. Guillaume thinks this letter was probably the last one between the two men, former war enemies in the context of the conquest of Algeria by the French, and as such it was not integrated in their famous joint book “Les Chevaux du Sahara”, also published in 1866.
