On the Moors (a day late)

This was a John Leech cartoon published in Punch in 1854.
The caption is:
Mr Puff: "My bird, I think."
Mr Muff: "Belongs to me, I fancy."

Clearly neither are gentlemen. a) each would know perfectly who had shot what b) if someone DID want to take the wrong bird, the correct response is.. " Yes definitely yours" c) and their clothese are too good to be anything other than parvenus.
