19Aug1865, The Great Crook Rise Day

BOLTON, August 19th, 1865.
—At last, a lovely serene day without a drop of rain. Very fortunate, for the great Crook Rise day. They set off at 9½ ; we drove to Thorpe Fell and came in for the last drive before luncheon, which did not come off till 3. We saw 3 drives afterwards. The sport was glorious, and the total the biggest ever known here : viz. 2502 brace. Fred's was the 3rd best bag : 37½ brace. We did not dine till 9.
