BROKEN STORIES

"mr. courthorpe dreams he was an english gent" 3 x 3 inches, acrylic on photopaper.

The Sportsman

No. XI

We have already adverted to the extraordinary number of accidents that have occurred this season from hunting. Last week added two serious ones to the number. On Friday, Colonel Standen broke his leg while hunting with the East Sussex foxhounds near Brighton. Mr. Courthorpe has likewise fractured his arm, from his horse falling during a run; but, we are glad to hear, is going on uncommonly well. The Irish papers bring us melancholy intelligence of _____ Fogarty, Esq., who broke a blood vessel in his exertions during a severe fox chase in December last.
