Mr Perry

Dear Sir

It is with sorry I have to state that this morning I sent a young man out upon the Lake with the intention of having the White Swans brought in to the Fish Ponds, but the third bird was found upon an island dead in the state which you will see - in my opinion has been torn with a dog, or something of the kind. So I will put the other two in to the enclosed Fish Pond
