 Item
Identifier: Coll-14/9/17/16

Scope and Contents

Elwes mentions an interesting breed of sheep called 'Neerie sheep' he has heard of from Harvie-Brown, as well as another breed, 'dun-faced sheep', which he has read about. He will write to Switzerland for information on a race of Swiss sheep which appears to resemble the Soay sheep and may be a direct descendent of a primeval Swiss breed.
