Letter to Henry John Elwes from James Cossar Ewart, 17 October 1912

 Item
Identifier: Coll-14/9/18/67
Scope and Contents Ewart writes that the embargo on transporting sheep and cattle between England and Scotland will be lifted in a few days. He thinks he may get the use of one of the islands in the Forth for sheep that are too wild for fences. He asks whether Elwes knows the Ryeland breed of sheep, as it has been suggested that he should put some to the 'Siberian' ram.

Letter to Henry John Elwes from James Cossar Ewart, 21 October 1912

 Item
Identifier: Coll-14/9/18/72
Scope and Contents Ewart writes that he will let Elwes know about the Ryelands ram. The cost of enclosing the sheep at the forthcoming Royal Highland Agricultural Show depends upon how many sheep Elwes is planning to exhibit; he should be able to cover the costs for the fencing by charging for the exhibition catalogue.
