Identifier: Coll-14/9/22/19
Scope and Contents

Douglas agrees with Ewart that funding would not be forthcoming from the Development Commissioners at present.

Letter to James Cossar Ewart from Henry John Elwes, 02 March 1922

Identifier: Coll-14/9/28/4
Scope and Contents

Elwes writes that he is sending some remarks about the report of the Committee on wool, of which Ewart was chiefly the author. Elwes believes that the Committee fails to realise that with the possible exception of the Merino and Shetland, wool is of minor importance to the breeder, and that no definite type of wool suitable for any specified purpose is indicated. He does not feel that the Welsh farm or Fochabers are suitable for experiments on crossing because they are low country farms.
