Life at Pisa I
[2 Dec 1821.] Walk with Jane in the evening and meet Lord B’s party — with whom we shoot. Lord B hit, at the distance of 14 yards, the bull’s eye four times, and a half-crown piece three. The last shot struck the piece of money so exactly in the centre that it was afterwards found with the ball enclosed within it — the sides being drawn to the centre like a three-cornered cocked hat.
