Letter to James Cossar Ewart from Henry John Elwes, 17 September [1913]

Identifier: Coll-14/9/19/44
Scope and Contents Elwes makes arrangements for visiting Ewart after his trip to Yorkshire.

He also plans to try some Exmoors this year, which thrive well on Salisbury Plain. He asks whether Ewart or Cowan have any Shetland sheep arriving that year.

The year is not written on the letter.
