Am. Autocratic Landlady.

The following letter gives an idea of the feeling landlords m some parts of England still entertain about their rights :-— "Rabbits, etc., Cefyn Bryri,"Park Mill, Swansea. Bear Sir,—Miss Talbot, being desirous of meeting the wishes of her tenants, as far as practicable, m regard to the killing down of rabbits, will not object to the same being taken; providing the taking is done m such careful and special manner as shall , not lead to or endanger the capture or injury of hares or other game, but guns or wires will not be allowed m any case. ■ With reference to shooting, Miss Talbot wishes it to be clearly understood that the use of the gun is not co be taken as incident to th« holding of any part of her property; and I am to request that no gun shall be, or be permitted to be used thereon. If m future you have reason to complain of an excess of rabbits on the land m your occupation, and will so inform me by letter, a trapper will be sent to reduce the number. With regard to the keeping of dogs, there being many greyhounds, lurchers, and other dogs (not sheep dogs) kept by certain persons. I have to draw your attention to the circumstance, and to request that all tenants having occasion for these animals should confine the breed to sheep dogs alone. As to the terms of the circular generally, Miss Talbot reserves to herself any necessary right of hereafter altering or withdrawing them ; but, whilst I request your co-operation, I may state that she anticipates nothing but your cheerful concurrence, m the fulfilment of her wishes.—.Very truly yours, Richard A. Esseey."
