Hunting of the Hare
A comic romance, published in Weber's collection. A yeoman
informs the inhabitants of a village that he has seen a hare, and
invites them to join him in hunting it. They attend with their curs and
mastiffs, pugs and house-dogs, and the fun turns on the truly
unsportsmanlike manner of giving puss the chase.
