On the Southern coasts of England the first system prevails and the thames oysters Winch Are the product of it Are by englishmen esteemed the Best in the world. They Are at any rate rare and costly. The Shell is delicate and the flesh plump. The thames Beds Are for fattening and for Breeding and receive great care.
