Papyrus, is concerned. The voyage and change of climate will militate against his chance. Apart from the commercial side of the race, it seems a pity that such a risk should be taken with the reputation of English_ blood stock. - If the American horse wins, it will be proclaimed throughout the world that America possesses the best racing blood. As a, matter of fact, the defeat of Papyrus ■will' prove nothing. Nevertheless, it: would". do irreparable mischief to English-breeders;"
