That would be WONDERFUL. I tried to reply to a couple of messages via the
norsecourse group site, but they never seemed to appear.
The "sheep letter" also went to the Orkneys and Shetlands. I have seen it
referred to as the "Soid Brevet" but never could find a copy of that either.
I am interested in it as a historical document because I am involved in
Shetland Sheepdogs. We are coming up on the centennary of their
recognition as a breed in the UK and I have been trying to find what
I can about their origins, thus my interest in the sheep letter as it
pertains to the dog laws.

I googled, but couldn't find the sheep letter in anything except the
manuscript. If it exists somewhere online in a form other than the
manuscript, I would love to translate it with Patricia and anyone else
interested. We could do it "zwischendurch" a couple of lines at a time --
maybe Wednesdays - - since it only seems to be six pages.
If it is only in the manuscript form, maybe Llama Nom could guide us to a
source that would help us figure out how the script can be read.
