The kitchen-gardens, the hot-houses, and the store-houses and some other structures, can be locked up at pleasure, Mr. Harrison and Mr. Pratt being the only persons having complete master keys. Part of the outer kitchen-garden is inclosed with an open iron spike fence, 5 ft. 6 in. high, within which and the inner walled garden are the strawberries and choicest gooseberries, figs, etc., and these inclosures are opened only by the master keys. The whole, therefore, of the wall and best fruit is secured from plunder.
