A Letter From Northampton

Friday, 15th April 1791

A letter from Northampton, April 9, says;

"Last week a grasier near Oxford, who had sustained great damage among his lambs, from the crows, hung up a dead lamb which he had dressed with poison in order to destroy them; the lamb was soon afterwards taken away by a party of gipsies, all of whom partook of it; in consequence of which eleven of them died soon afterwards, and three or four others were not expected to recover.
