Observations on Fox-Hunting, Vol. 28 free pdf Excerpt from Observations on Fox-Hunting, Vol. 28 The work that is now placed in our hands is but little known to the present generation, though a modern Master of Foxhounds would do well to follow every word of advice it contains. The author himself was M.F.H. and carried the horn at the beginning of the last century. A study of his remarkably sound treatise on Foxhunting leaves us with the reflection that the essentials of the sport have changed but slightly since the Battle of Waterloo. He speaks of the excessive preservation of game, of the difficulties of earthstopping, of the jealousy of the riders, in a tone which makes it difficult to believe that a hundred years have glided by since he gained his experience, while his advice on the management of hounds and country at once proclaim him master of a system approved by all recent authorities. Colonel John Cook was born at Christ Church, in Hampshire, in 1773, a date in the history of England when the patricians were at the very zenith of their power, and in addition to directing the politics, had also placed themselves at the head of the field sports of the country. The era of Squire Western and Tony Lumpkin was passing away- a Foxhunter was no longer a synonym for a sot, a clown and dunce, and had ceased to be the butt of a satirist and the fine gentleman. Lord Chesterfield had died in the same year that our author was born, and his proposition that "Foxhunting was only fit for bumpkins and boobies" had by that time been deprived of most of its meaning.
