NICKING. A term of great reproach, among Meltonians, to those who are so shabby as to cut across to the hounds, when it is esteemed so much more honourable to follow their very track; by which spirited line of conduct they may be pretty certain of never seeing them at all. —Notes to Billesdon Coplow.
