Letter to James Cossar Ewart from Wilfrid Scawen Blunt, 03 October 1903

Identifier: Coll-14/9/8/78
Scope and Contents Blunt reassures Ewart that he has not lost interest in his experiments and discoveries.

He is pleased the grey arab given as a filly, has proved useful to Ewart and states that he will be unable to supply a friend of Ewart's with a bay Arabian mare due to the great demand for Arabian horses in the colonies.
