Choosing Hares: White flesh'd and flexible when new and fresh kill'd; if stale, their flesh will have a blackish hue, like old pigeons, if the cleft in her lip spread much, is wide and ragged, she is old; the contrary when young. If the claws are blunt and ragged, the ears dry and tough, and the haunch thick it is old: but if the claws are smooth and sharp, the ears easily tear, and the cleft in the lip is not much spread, it is young. If fresh and newly killed, the body will be stiff, and the flesh pale. But they keep a good while by proper care; and are best when rather beginning to turn, if the inside is preserved from being musty.
