I alway wondered about that , what was what in hunting. Thank you explaining it so well.
So , in our story Mr Darcy could hunt but had to pay taxes, mr Bingly hand to pay 25 shillings for certificate , or as Mr Darcy’s guest was that okay? I mean when Mr Darcy did allow hunting , for his own table . Did mr Burr pluck the birds , or did the kitchen staff do that ? I know I being nit picky . Sorry , I was just wondering, The big game I can under stand that Mr Burr did the cleaning of the game , before it went to the kitchen. I love the way you describe Mrs Burr. It seems everyone is in a love match on Pemberly land.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
