Letter to James Cossar Ewart from Charles Mackinnon Douglas, 21 March 1916

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. Although he is in favour of the Highland and Agricultural Society supporting Ewart's work, he fears that the Directors will not agree, as at present they are disinclined to spend the Society's money on purely scientific research. However, if Ewart puts in an application, he will do his best for it in the Committee.
