Mr. Raine,

      I duly received your letter of the 16th of last Month and am sorry I have so long delayed replying to it.

      With respect to the Swans, I must own that I do not feel by any means satisfied that the six which came here some weeks since are those which are <missing> from the Bretton Water. The fact is there have been two flights, consisting of six each, seen at this place at the same time and this circumstance I mentioned to Colnl. Beaumonts Keeper when he was here. It is therefore possible that the six which are here may not belong to Bretton, be this as it may however, it is far from my wish to retain them as they certainly are not mine. They had however, perhaps better remain here ‘till the return of Colnl. or Mrs. Beaumont to Bretton, and I will give my Keeper directions to pay due attention to any orders they may think proper to give respecting them.

      I am &c

      Chas: Winn
