Cameron's property, Climes, they rattled down the road past Mr Ulyctt's for two miles, across Mr Chambers property, and killed about a mile below Mr Dan. McKendry's homestead ; distance run, about 3h miles; time twenty-three minutes. Going back to Mr Cameron's land again at Cairnbrae a hare was quickly found, which ran across Mr Ulyett's and on to Springfield, crossing two paddocks, and on to the Methven road following that for three-quarters of a mile and again taking on to the Springfield land.
