Scope and Contents Forsyth instructs Ewart not to answer the recent letter in The Oban Times from a J. Macleod. He reports that Maclean of Nunton wants £25 to £30 premium for his stallion to serve in Benbecula but he has instructed the office of the Congested Districts Board not to offer more than £10. 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.

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.
