Letter to James Cossar Ewart from Henry John Elwes, 26 July [1913]

 Item
Identifier: Coll-14/9/19/36
Scope and Contents

Elwes writes that he is glad to hear that the farm is arranged and that Ewart will be able to carry out some more extensive experiments. He enquires about the fat-tailed ram at Liverpool, as he would like to see him, and remarks that the weather at Colesbourne will suit him more than Ewart's farm at Fairslacks. He suggests that Ewart send over some live specimens of sheep to the new Zoological Gardens in Edinburgh.

The year is not written on the letter.
