Flight effects on plasma levels of lipid, glucagon and thyroid hormones in homing pigeons, October 1989
Located in I.G.A.P. Staff Papers 1987-1989.
Balfour writes that, after receiving an enclosed letter from Barrington Balfour (letter not present), she suggests that Ewart contacts Barrington himself. In a later postscript, she adds that she would like to come and see Ewart's pigeons.
Headley informs Ewart that the Fabian Society have asked him to lecture on the bearing of Weismannism on modern social questions. He challenges Ewart's statement that enfeeblement in pigeons can be traced to an illness in the parents at the time of conception as being more allied to Lamarckism. Headley suggests that this is more likely to be due to lack of food supply to the egg.
The date on the letter does not include a year, but another hand has noted '[1903?]'
France writes that he hopes Ewart gets one of Mr Allies' pigeons. He mentions Henry Robinson's views of the Connemara, and the breeding history of a dun mare purchased by Ewart.
Prothero thanks Ewart for the pair of pigeons which he sent him.
Watt thanks Ewart belatedly for sending a copy of his Penycuik Experiments. He mentions Frank Finn having sent Ewart a pamphlet relevant to his researches. He discusses the possibility of being able to procure for him a pure 'Katiawar' mare for cross-breeding purposes and writes that he has arranged to have two Indian rock pigeons sent off to him.
