Elwes, Henry John, 1846-1922 (traveller and botanist)
Found in 2 Collections and/or Records:
Elwes writes that he has heard that the sheep at Greystoke will be transported once the restrictions in Peebles are lifted. He recommends that Ewart take a photograph of the Foula ewes while they are alive. He is buying some of Lort's Manx and Manx-Soay crosses, and a black bull with a broad white belt. He would like to put his fat-tailed ewes to Ewart's fat-tailed ram.
The year is not written on the letter.
Alexander makes arrangements for meeting Ewart and states that his zebra bull will be at Ewart's service if there is a decent summer. He has two white bulls for sale, and complains that Elwes will not return his sheep crates.
