Scope and Contents Le Souef confirms receipt of 'the Gillespie papers', parts of which he is copying out before returning them to Ewart. He reports that he has talked with the commercial agent of Australia House about the possibility of the Prime Minister visiting the universities of Aberdeen and Edinburgh. He complains about the pastoralists and departments of agriculture in Australia not knowing of the work that is going on and so being unable to co-operate or adapt to their special conditions.

Letter to James Cossar Ewart from Albert Sherbourne Le Souef, 26 May 1930
Scope and Contents Le Souef asks Ewart to procure some photographs of hybrid 'Psoa' sheep and a typical sample of wool from Gillespie. Some pastoralists have expressed an interest in the wool from these sheep as it may make a better tweed-like cloth when mixed with Merino. He reports that he has worked out a scheme which he hopes will lead to the production of many quality skins from colder districts.
