30Oct1871, Hunting in the Rain

BOLTON, Saturday, SS. Simon and Jude.
—Old Nevy 26 to-day. Rained steadily and nastily with little cessation. The Dauntless Duke and his faithful few went up manfully to the moors nevertheless ; but first Eddy, then Frank and Mr. Strutt, sneaked home ! Mr. S. had lamed his thumb ; N.B. Charles and Mr. Coore, I verily believe, enjoyed themselves.

BOLTON, Monday, October 30th, 1871.
—Grand total, 14,273 head. We got to Chatsworth at dinner.
