Letter to James Cossar Ewart from James N. Forsyth, 02 April 1908

Identifier: Coll-14/9/14/12

Scope and Contents

Forsyth writes that Arthur Cecil will send his horse to Benbecula or South Uist. He has seen the negative letter from Calgary and encourages Ewart to make a reply if he thinks fit. He has forwarded Pipon's letter to the Secretary of State for Scotland with a suggestion that the Congested District Board and War Office now cooperate. He would like the yellow dun mare to go to Monkstadt (the experimental farm of the Congested Districts Board), perhaps in exchange for the two-year old filly from 'Polly'.
