Letter to James Cossar Ewart from Henry John Elwes, 14 February [1913]

 Item
Identifier: Coll-14/9/19/8
Scope and Contents Elwes writes that he is away in South France and that two men in Algeria informed him that in Morocco there is a race of sheep which could be the origin of the Spanish Merino, and that the spotted sheep are much like a breed which now exists in the Constantine province and which occasionally has four horns. He has seen three or four more or less distinct breeds of sheep in the Basque country.

The year is not written on the letter.
Dates: 14 February [1913]
