Excerpt from Records of Stag-Hunting on Exmoor
The writer has throughout looked upon his own commentary as subservient to the records in the Appendix; he is fully conscious of many imperfections in his work, and is well aware that much of it can be interesting only to dwellers in the west country. Nevertheless he has some h0pe that, with the powerful aid of Mr. Giberne’s pencil, he may give strangers some faint notion of what the chase of the wild red deer is, and of the reasons why the west countrymen are so enthusiastic over it.
