Letter to James Cossar Ewart from Albert Sherbourne Le Souef, 04 October 1926

Identifier: Coll-14/9/32/5

Scope and Contents

Le Souef wishes to send Ewart a specimen of the racoon-like dog to compare its habits with Ewart's South American specimen, and to try to cross it with a small Pomeranian or Pekinese. This could help to prove that these breeds originated from a wild species indigenous to China and Japan, and challenge the theory that all dogs originated from the wolf. He asks Ewart for an account for the wool and weaving from Professor Barker and writes that he will see if Bruce will contact the universities of Aberdeen and Edinburgh.
