Mrs B		undated

I have sent by this mornings coach two Pinis and have since received Mr Morrisons letter and shall take care that your commands in respect to the forwarding of Game are duly observed.  I shall endeavour to send a brace or two of Black Game to be at Doncaster on the 17th along with more game.
Undated but in sequence between those dated 20th June and 3rd Nov 1821. The diary kept by Diana’s daughter Diana shows that they went to Doncaster on Sept 16th, so his letter presumes can be dated to shortly before then, and the 12th is used here
