The Fa­ther, the Son and the Holy hunt

Country Life Every Week - - Letters To The Editor -

BY co­in­ci­dence, Rothes Miller came to lunch here on the day you pub­lished her let­ter (Fe­bru­ary 22) about the ad­ja­cent pack of fox­hounds be­ing blessed be­fore hunt­ing. I was able to tell her of the days when, as a young bach­e­lor based at home, a hunt­ing day some­times co­in­cided with early Com­mu­nion in the vil­lage church. It was not un­usual to see spurs stick­ing out be­low the bot­tom of our hunt­ing par­son’s cas­sock—he al­ways wanted to avoid be­ing late at the meet, so, un­der his ec­cle­si­as­ti­cals, he was dressed for a day’s hunt­ing.
