 Item
Identifier: Coll-14/9/14/10
Scope and Contents Forsyth instructs Ewart not to answer the recent letter in The Oban Times from a J. Macleod.

He is buying the yellow dun mare from Ritchie and will send for the Connemara pony. He concludes that there will be no Scottish Land Legislation this year.

Letter to James Cossar Ewart from James N. Forsyth, [1905]

 Item
Identifier: Coll-14/9/11/45
Scope and Contents Forsyth writes that he has sent on the draft 'Sire and Service of Mares' from 1906 to Mackintosh and would be glad of any rough notes on the Monkstadt ponies (the experimental farm of the Congested Districts Board). The back of the letter contains notes in Ewart's hand on a list of names to whom he has sent his 'Tarpan' paper (possibly 'The Tarpan and its Relationship with Wild and Domestic Horses').

Letter is undated but likely to be from the year 1905.

Letter to James Cossar Ewart from James N. Forsyth, 07 August 1907

 Item
Identifier: Coll-14/9/13/35
Scope and Contents Forsyth reports that the Congested Districts Board are now ceasing to breed ponies for the crofters as they believe they now have enough stock to keep them going. He thinks that the Board would be happy to purchase the ponies 'Fatima II' and 'Rhona' with their foals and agrees with Ewart that a Highland Pony Society should be formed to make for fairer judging between different breeds.
