[8] A hound that ignores the trail1 and races over the track of the hare on the run is ill-bred. Some, again, will pursue hotly at first, and then slack off from want of pluck; others will cut in ahead and then get astray; while others foolishly dash into roads and go astray, deaf to all recall.

1 “The trail of the hare is the path she takes in going to her seat.”—Beckford.
