Motcombe House, Lord Robert Grosvenor. - The situation is flat and dull in the extreme; because it is flat without water on the ground, and without hills in the immediate vicinity; in short, a flat in the midst of a flat. Along the road there is an extensive plantation recently formed, the weeds in which, such as docks and thistles, both in full seed, were more abundant than the trees.
