Letter to James Cossar Ewart from Lord Arthur Cecil, 12 September 1909

 Item
Identifier: Coll-14/9/15/23
Scope and Contents Cecil reports that he is making good progress with the Highland Stud Book. He believes Ewart's height limitations are right but would prefer to leave out the word 'garron'. He writes that the mainland ponies are only big because they have generations of better keep and because a little Clydesdale blood has been kept in them.

Letter to James Cossar Ewart from Lord Arthur Cecil, 01 December 1912

 Item
Identifier: Coll-14/9/18/81
Scope and Contents Cecil confirms details of the transport of the cow in calf to his Jersey bull from Southampton to Glasgow. They have nearly succeeded in altering the title of the stud book to the 'National British Pony Stud Book'. He wishes the Highland breeders would submit their entries, as he does not think it wise to have separate publications in England and Scotland.
