Content DescriptionHe has got Galway's letter late having been summoned out early to deal with a score of difficulties; discusses fishing and the lack of salmon in the rivers at Langwell; mentions a scheme to improve the fishing and establish salmon ladders, which if it had been done properly, could have established Langwell as an 'A1' salmon fishing place; says that one must be in one's prime to begin such doubtful schemes, with no one to follow on who can be depended upon to persevere.
