07Dec1869, Treassures Found in a Corner

CHATSWORTH, December 7th, 1869.
—The quaintest little old children's carriages have been found in a corner, which must have been made for the late Duke and his sisters, or for his left-handed brethren, the Cliffords : one is shaped like a cockle-shell ; mounted on high green and gold wheels, and fitted with single and double harness for dogs ! The shafts and pole are twisted snakes, and there is a comical hood. Also two spotted rocking-horses.
