Synopsis

PREFACE In response to a suggestion that some of my father ’s writings upon Fox-hunting should be collected and published in a separate volume, I have chosen the three papers contained in this book. His claim to be heard rests upon accomplishments still fresh in the annals of the chase; it may, however, be of interest to recall that he became Master of the Warwickshire Hounds in 1876, availing himself of the services of a professional huntsman until 1881, when he commenced to carry the horn himself, and continued to do so till ill health caused his retirement in the autumn of 1898.
