He was a bay horse, with a blaze in his face, and four white feet.

CHILDERS (BARTLET'S), bred by Mr Childers, own brother to Flying Childers.

Mr Cheney says, he has heard the contrary from so many gentlemen of worth and honour, that he cannot but be of opinion that he was own brother to him. Be that as it may, Bartlet's Childers got so many good horses, that he is now justly ranked with the first-rate stallions.
