MR. PRYSE-RICE'S HOUNDS. Saturday. 19th ult, was our last hunting day before" King Frost" set his iron grip on all the land. Met at Towy Bridge, and found as soon as hounds were thrown into covert, one of those rare hill foxes who run all day, and never tire. The going was very bad, slippery sidelands with sheets of ice, and the perpendicular side of one hill, on which the sun had never shone all day, was quite im- practicable. This necessitated our finding another crossing, and when the Master got to his hounds, they had, unfortunately, changed on to a fresh fox in a big woodland-very hard 'ines, as they had seen him at a smart pace for nearly two hours. The fresh one. how- ever, was a good one too, and ran till dark, and though Mr Jeffreys, junr., viewed him in a small covert, quite beat, only about five minutes in front of the pack, as soon as they got on to the open mountain, hounds had to be stopped, owing to the actual fall of night. A hard day for hounds, for they had been running hard for a matter of nearly six hours, and thoroughly deserved their fox. After that a week's inactivity and frost. Tuesday, 29th—Penybont—Amongst those out I noticed the Master and Mrs Pryse-Rice, Mr and Mrs Jeffreys, Miss Jeffreys, Messrs Wardell, Gwynne-Vaughan, Jeffreys (2), Haly, Stewart, &c. Did not find till 3 o'clock in Poverty Wood, which held a good fox, who gave us a clinking 40 minutes over by Ynys- bordy, Wernfellin, <Scc., ending with a kill near Waunywormyd. Saturday, 2nd inst.—Cynghordy, Cefengar- reg, and several other covers proved blank, but in drawing the long heather on the hill, hounds made a very pretty find, the fox jumping up in front of them, and, going away ZD over the mountain, made at first as if for the Sugar Loaf, but changing his mind altered his point past Cefen, Glancruchian, etc and got to ground, a thoroughly beaten fox, at the end of an hour and a half in the sand earth at Cefenllan, near Glanbraine Park, which was, unfortunately, open. Monday, 5th--Pem hi w, Rhaiader—I awoke to find the ground white with snow and a frost. Thinking, with many others that hounds would not hunt, I stayed at home. Great, however, was my chagrin to hear they not only went out, but had a clinking day. From what I hear the going must have been bad, not to say dangerous, but bounds after finding in the big covert at Towy Bridge, perchance one of those foxes which gave us such sport on the 19th, ran hard over the hills for oi hours, rolling their fox over on the open mountain at quarter to six o'clock in the dark, with few but the hunt staff in the dark, with few but the hunt staff in attendance.
