Choosing Leverets: Like the Hare in every respect, that some are obliged to search for the knob, or small bone on the fore leg or foot, to distinguish them. 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. 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. To know, a real leveret, you should look for a knob or small bone near the foot on its fore leg; if there is none, it is a hare.
