Apr-11-09  Hugh the Drover: Black's Knight is burned in a cloud of dust (of a generic type), and is like the brother you love to burn in the song "It's a Family Affair" (by Sly and Family Stone or Earth Cloud & Fire?) Like a cheap bottle of gin, that knight is en pris and ready to be taken en passant by Blackburne.

In Graham's book (p. 234) 'Mr. Bently Macleod', but the spelling <McLeod> is more likely as in Harding's book on pages 126, 142 & 150.
