John Randolph - The Consumate Virginian

He entered the House chamber, spurs jingling, with several of his hounds close about his feet. He wore "a full suit of heavy, drab-colored English broadcloth" . . . His hat might be pulled down to his eyes. The heel of a whip tapped in his hand. ~ from David Johnson's, John Randolph of Roanoke
