22Aug1871, A Hideous Adventure

BOLTON, Tuesday, August 22nd, 1871.
—We all went up to luncheon at Lords Stoup, but cd. not come in for a drive. Had a hideous adventure coming home with an unfortunate wounded grouse whom in Christian charity we were forced to kill, and which had more lives than a cat and more blood than an ox.
