Doctor Syntax

.

A simple-minded, pious henpecked clergyman, very simple-minded, but of excellent taste and scholarship, who left home in search of the picturesque. His adventures are told in eight-syllable verse in The Tour of Dr. Syntax, by William Combe. (See Duke Combe.)

Dr. Syntax’s horse. Grizzle, all skin and bone. (See Horse.)
