Holtes hore, I, 177, Holtys hore, II, 256, hoary holts, To chaly yn holtes hore, to chase in grey woods. In Lyes Saxon dictionary « polt, holte,” is explain'd “ An holt. Lucus, fylva, nemus:" a grove, forest, or wood. Thus, too, in Chaucers Prologue, V.6:
“ Whan Zephirus eke with his fote brethe
Enspired hath in every holt and hethe.” Again, in Troilus and Creseide, B. 3, V. 352 :
“ But right fo as these holtes, and these hayis,

“ Yee that frequent the hilles,
And highest holtes of all." In a very ancient Scotish fong, however, citeëd in the royal ballad of Peblis to the play, it seems to be use’d for wood Or forest:
“ Thair fure ane man to the holt :" as, in fact, it is, in another instance, by bishop Douglas, P. 201, C. 15:
“ Woddis, forestis with naket bewis blout,
Stude stripit of thare wede in every hout." Honder, a hundreds
