Found in 2 Collections and/or Records:
Scope and Contents Ewart encloses a cheque for the ewes Elwes is sending him, and confirms the number of sheep that are being sent. He tried to cross a he-goat with some ewes but there was no progeny. He asks if Ewart would like to see Appel's book on sheep.
Dates: 25 November 1912
Scope and Contents Elwes recommends that Ewart write to the Jardins des Plantes for the carcass of one of the chabin (a goat/sheep hybrid) to ascertain whether or not it is a hybrid, and that someone should inspect and sketch their sheep specimens before they decay much further. He has heard of the existence of a black-faced heath sheep with long curved horns still existing in North Holland which could be related to the old Norfolk sheep.
