Letter to James Cossar Ewart from John Mackenzie, 03 July 1914

Identifier: Coll-14/9/20/17
Scope and Contents

Mackenzie writes that it is now too late in the season to get 10 or 20 ewes from the island of Soay, but he would be able to issue instructions for the ewes to be removed in the summer of 1915. There is an embargo by the Board of Agriculture against the exportation of sheep from St Kilda due to scab, although Mackenzie asserts that scab has never existed on the island.
