Here is the Protestant Kingston College, a home for poor gentlefolk, founded by James, Lord Kingston, in 1760.
His ancestors had been gentlefolk, but his father had reduced himself to hard straits by loose living.
The huntsman stood halfway up the knoll holding up his whip and the gentlefolk rode up to him at a footpace; the hounds that were far off on the horizon turned away from the hare, and the whips, but not the gentlefolk, also moved away.
