Letter to James Cossar Ewart from William Boyd Dawkins (incomplete), 08 December 1907

Identifier: Coll-14/9/13/47

Scope and Contents

Dawkins writes that he is sure the Glastonbury Committee will allow Ewart to study the remains of horses among their collections of refuse bones and provides the address of the master digger. He adds that he has not received 'the Roman Skulls from Newstead.'

The latter part of the letter, including author's signature, is unclear, but the address matches that of William Boyd Dawkins.
