Excerpt from History in Brief of "Leopard" And "Linden," General Grant's Arabian Stallions: Presented to Him by the Sultan of Turkey in 1879; Also Their Sons "General Beale," "Hegira," and "Islam," Bred by Randolph Huntington; Also Reference to the Celebrated Stallion "Henry Clay"
All my life, or for fifty years, I had desired to see and examine genuine Arabian horses, such as I could know to a certainty were strictly thoroughbred Arabians. That they were rare indeed in any country I knew.
Writers upon them were very superficial, being mostly tourists or travellers, interested in geographical matters, or in the people, customs, and relics, with traditional associations, seldom if ever being horsemen, capable of judging with just comparison, if I except Sir Wilfrid S. Blunt, of England, who, as an equine investigator of re markable ability, in company with his wife lived with the Arabs of the desert for that express purpose, and to whom I am indebted for very much valuable information upon the subject.
