01Sep1854, Wasps fight

HAGLEY, September 1st, 1854.
—When we were on our way to Mrs. Billin, we sat there some little time, Aunt Coque spouting poetry, and we witnessed a curious fight between two wasps on the ground. The victor cut off his enemy's head and tail and we left him with the body in his arms.

By the bye, Granny reads the " Rivals " to us after dinner ; it is capital.
