There is frequently an additional one, for two balls, nailed higher up to the same cheek, under the [[c:​cap|cap]],​ for a pair of spare balls, or to keep them separate when necessary; [[p:​pelts|pelt]] balls injure each other when kept together for any length of time; and [[c:​composition|composition]] balls should never be left one upon the other, for they adhere to each other, and the surface is frequently torn in separating them.
