A holy day’s hunt­ing

Country Life Every Week - - Letters To The Editor -

AT a meet of our hunt yes­ter­day, we were sur­prised and charmed to be joined by the lo­cal vicar, who first blessed hounds, then us and our horses. He an­nounced him­self to be a keen coun­try­man and said he was about to take de­liv­ery of two spaniel pup­pies so that he could go rough shoot­ing, this be­ing what his salary could af­ford. We rode off feel­ing very for­tu­nate and had a safe and happy day.

The hunt sec­re­tary said that he doubted any of us had ever been blessed at a meet be­fore, but surely there must have been other hunts as blessed as ours? Rothes Miller, South & West Wilts Hunt
