Letter to James Cossar Ewart from Heatley Noble, 23 May 1912

Identifier: Coll-14/9/18/32

Scope and Contents

Noble reports that he has heard from an acquaintance that the piebald sheep breed is unknown to him, and that his friend H.M Wallis didn't hear of any sheep like theirs when he was in Algeria. He concludes that the piebald sheep appear to be the result of a cross which has bred true, but that the country of origination cannot be traced, and that the breed now does not exist outwith the British Isles.
