Letter to James Cossar Ewart from Henry John Elwes, 20 September 1911

 Item
Identifier: Coll-14/9/17/58
Scope and Contents Elwes thanks Ewart for the draft of the application which he hopes to submit shortly. If Ewart can secure the grazing on the hill behind his farm, Elwes will send him 30 Shetland ewes. He will take the five sheep that are for sale for £9 and offers Ewart the Herdwick ram that Mr Howard of Greystoke is selling, if Ewart would like to try him with some Cheviot or Blackface ewes. He advises Ewart to get the printed results of experiments at the Cumberland Experimental Farm near Penrith.

 Item
Identifier: Coll-14/9/19/37
Scope and Contents Elwes writes that the restrictions on transporting sheep are now removed and that the sheep at Greystoke will be sending their sheep to Elwes as soon as possible. Elwes asks Ewart to confirm whether he can take the sheep on his farm for a year, as he himself will be short of room.
