Letter to James Cossar Ewart from John Douglas-Boswell-Campbell, 22 September 1924

Identifier: Coll-14/9/30/7

Scope and Contents

Campbell enquires how many pure Soay sheep Ewart is thinking of putting on Ailsa Craig and provides some information about the island. He thinks that Lord Ailsa would consent to 20 Soays without any reduction in the goats that are already there, and believes that the Soays would be better suited to the weather conditions than the Blackfaces, all of which died.
