Higginson reports the Duke of Portland's observation: "I knew Pennell-Elmhirst very well indeed. He was a first-rate man to hounds, a fine sportsman, and an excellent horseman; but he very often appeared with a scratched and bleeding face. I think he wrote the best hunting articles I have ever read". Phillips, p. 113; British and American Sporting Authors, p. 128
