Elwes, Henry John, 1846-1922 (traveller and botanist)
Found in 2 Collections and/or Records:
Elwes writes that he is enclosing a letter from Heatley Noble about the pied sheep (letter not present) of which he showed Ewart photographs and remarks on the interesting point he makes about the crosses always coming out black. If this can be verified, Elwes will get his tup from the Shetland flock to cross with him on other breeds. He also provides a list of crosses he proposes to make and asks for Ewart's advice.
The year is not written on the letter.
Elwes writes that he is enclosing a letter from Colonel Powney concerning some sheep which are extraordinarily different from each other and from Ewart's 'so-called Siberian' sheep. He will also try to get Powney to persuade Jamrach to tell him where he got the piebald sheep from.
