Mr. Harding says; "If I thought Sir Michael Bass was a reader of the Monthly I would certainly apologize to him through its pages, for the vexatious mistake I unfortunately made when commenting upon beautiful Rangemore, under the caption of ' Fragmentary Gossip,' in the November number. To my great grief, I was led to suppose from my informant's language, who had recently gone through the grand gardens there, when saying - 'they have begun to pull down already ' - had reference to the hot or greenhouses. Instead of which, from later advices, I learn it is a part of the mansion, which is to be rebuilt on a grander scale. Deeply regretting having committed such an unintentional error, I thus hasten to make the amende honorable, by asking you to kindly place it before the readers in the next issue of your magazine".
