Letter From Balaherne

I do not comprehend. By the rites of the Hunt, the hare must have some chance of escape, however small.

I understand that this is Egahirn's first Hunt, I see that he must succeed, but does it not impair the principles of the Hunt to have him bear one of the six keys? How is the hare to wrest it from him?

Egahirn should pass the rite as you did, as I did, as a proper hunter, in full obedience to the forms. Surely it is the only way for the rite to be firm and fast.
