Excerpt
Excerpt: The Man Who Hunts and Doesn?t Like It. It seems to be odd, at first sight, that there should be any such men as these; but their name and number is legion. If we were to deduct from the hunting- crowd farmers, and others who hunt because hunting is brought to their door, of the remainder we should find that the ?men who don?t like it? have the preponderance. It is pretty much the same, I think, with all amusements. How many men go to balls, to races, to the theatre, how many women to concerts and races, simply because it is the thing to do? They have perhaps, a vague idea that they may ultimately find some joy in the pastime; but, though they do the thing constantly, they never like it. Of all such men, the hunting men are perhaps the most to be pitied.
