A naked man in the woods

The Duke of Beaufort’s hounds, on Wednesday, were in full cry after a fox, which they had taken through the woods of Spye Park, when they turned out a man in an entire state of nudity (with the exception of a pair of half boots). He appears to have been a lunatic, who had escaped from a private asylum, and after whom a keeper had for some time been in search.
