RULES relating to the Method of Matching and

FIGHTING of COCKS in London, in practice ever since the reign of King Charles 2.

To begin the same by fighting the lightest pair of cocks (which fall in match) first proceeding upwards to the end; that every lighter pair may fight earlier than those that are heavier.

In matching (with relation to the battles,) it is a rule always in London :- That after the cocks of the main are weighed, the match-bills are compared.

That every pair of equal or dead weight, are separated, and fight against others; provided that it appears that the main can be enlargel, by adding thereto, either one battle or more thereby.
