Mrs B 		3 Nov 1821

I sent by the mail of yesterday two boxes of game containing 3 brace of grouse and a brace of black game.  Matthew Lee has not been able to get any <....> Partridges owing to the continuous rain ... the Pinis are scarcely ripe but shall be sent as soon as they are fit to eat.  The season for salmon fishing ceased in Sept until the 20th of December.  I feel much obliged to you for your kind intention of sending the pheasants every care shall be taken of them.
