Letter to James Cossar Ewart from Henry John Elwes, 19 April 1915

 Item
Identifier: Coll-14/9/21/9
Scope and Contents Elwes enquires whether Ewart thinks it worthwhile to import any sheep from the Faroes, and if so, could Lord Bute or Cowan take them, as he has no room. He refers to a letter from a Mrs Taylor which mentions crossing a fox-coloured ram with a black ewe.
