These two names were for a long time "familiar in men's mouths as household words."

As master and huntsman of the Cheshire, they were second to none. LORD GROSVENOR resided at that time at Calveley Hall, in the very cream of the country. At his father's death he became Marquis, and afterwards the first Duke, of Westminster.

Vain and needless, and perhaps impertinent, to speak of his character and public career, for the whole civilised world knew and admired them; and many an object of charity, private and public, had cause to lament his death. PETER COLLISON, his huntsman, was a good servant, rather of the order
celebrated with Mr. Jorrocks in the person of James Pigg.
