“Thou art the lyme-hound, I am the gazehound… . Thou hast deep sagacity and unrelenting purpose, a steady, long-breathed malignity of nature, that surpasses mine. But then, I am the bolder, the more ready, both at action and expedient… . I say … shall we hunt in couples?”—Sir W. Scott: Kenilworth, chap. iv.
