A letter from Sittingbourne, in Kent, says, that there is an appearance of a finer crop of hops than they have had for many years; and as to their wheat, they do not remember so great a crop; their cherry-trees were all loaded, but they sold so cheap in the London markets, that they did not pay for gathering and sending up to town, and therefore they fed the hogs with great quantities of them.
