Rain

.—The present long and fatal rain in England has entirely ruined the country past redemption, unless it shall please Heaven to put a speedy end to it. All vegetation is checked, the poor are starving for want of bread, and the bountiful lap of nature no more supplies us with her accustomed blessings, for nature herself seems to riot in the general devastation; and all owing to this cursed rain.
