“Or, the Lord Chief Justice in His Hobby in the Nineteenth Century.”

“‘Happy Thought!’ – write a history of the Chace! Send Alexander Cockburn to himself on the passing of the Ground-Game Bill. The Chief has only two great predecessors in this line – Xenophon, and Mr. Jorrocks, whom he doesn't; but, like a thorough old sportsman, he takes a line of his own across country.”
