at Eingmer ; respecting the establishment of these hounds we publish a copy of the original document in relation thereto, which we have obtained since the chapter on racing and hunting was written. For this we are indebted to the kindness of W. C. Tamplin, Esq., the respected Treasurer to the Brighton Hunt, and hereto append the same:
" It being proposed to establish a Pack of Fox Hounds by Subscription in the Eastern part ot Sussex (extending from the Shoreham River to the neighbourhood of Eastbourne, Hailsham, and Hellingly) of which Major Cator has undertaken the management, the following Gentlemen have formed themselves into a Committee, to carry the above intention into effect."
Viscount Gage.
W. Campion, Esq. (of Danny.)
C. C. Cavendish, Esq.
Capt. Shiffner.
H. Campion, Esq.
My Dear Sir,I send you the proceedings of the temporary Committee. I meant to have asked you to be one of them, but I always forgot to do so when I saw you, and we had delayed so long in sending anything round to the country that it was thought better to form the present one, and hereafter it may be thought advisable to call a meeting of the subscribers and let them appoint a permanent one.
I shall be obliged to you if you will make out a List of Names in your neighbourhood to whom it would be proper to send the Circular.
You will perceive I have put you down as a 25 guinea subscriber. I do not know if I have done justice to you in it, but I consider what you do equal to that.
