TO THE EDITOR OF THE CORK EXAMINER.

Killagh, July 28, 1847

DEAR SIR– When I saw you last, you requested of me to report to you from time to time the state of the crops in this neighbourhood. A great portion of the Barley is injured; the Wheat is partially blighted; the oat crops very good, and the potatoes not more diseased than they were a fortnight ago. Considering the great quantity of land that has been tilled this year, I think that we will have enough of our own food for this and the next year.
