Letter to James Cossar Ewart from Horatio Robert Forbes Brown, 22 September 1911

Identifier: Coll-14/9/17/59

Scope and Contents

Brown writes that he is sorry that Ewart and the other members of the Committee were 'exposed to an ungracious reception' by the District Committee and the County Council, but that thanks to Ewart's efforts, 'the rock gets a breathing space' and Brown will contribute towards the cost of testing and opening up the quarry on the opposite side. He enquires whether Ewart is familiar with a reference to the horses of the Maetae in Scriptores Historiae Augustae.
