Letter to James Cossar Ewart from Lieutenant-General Walter Norris Congreve, [c. July 1905]

 Item
Identifier: Coll-14/9/11/18

Scope and Contents

Congreve writes that he has been put in touch with Ewart by Colonel Spencer Ewart. He describes the small herd of wild white cattle at Chartley which had been sold to the Duke of Bedford by Chartley's previous owner. Congreve wishes to introduce fresh blood into the herd in order to rescue dwindling numbers, and asks for Ewart's advice.

Letter is undated but it is assumed to date from shortly after the letter to Ewart from Spencer Ewart at Coll-14/9/11/12.
