Letter to James Cossar Ewart from John Crichton-Stuart, 4th Marquess of Bute, 10 May 1917

Identifier: Coll-14/9/23/4
Scope and Contents

Crichton-Stuart, who signs himself 'Bute', writes that he was interested to hear of the results of Ewart's experiments with the crossbred fat-tailed sheep, and that he will look forward to reading Ewart's paper on the subject after the war. He asks Ewart whether the experiments have tended to strengthen Mendel's theories or not. He wishes he could be in Edinburgh but his military duties keep him in North Wales.
