Letter to James Cossar Ewart from Henry John Elwes, 17 May 1911
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.
