She turned her handkerchief down from her neck, which, with the glow that the work bad brought into her cheeks, formed an object which 1 do Dot say would have made me actual-y stap my chaise, had it not been for the occupation in which she was engaged; but, all taken together, the temptation was too strong to be resisted. But, there is the Sunday, and 1 know of no law human or divine, that forbids a labouring man to dig or plant his garden on Sunday, if the good of his family demand it; and if be cannot, without injury, to that family, find other time to do it in. Shepherds, carters, pigfeeders, drovers, coachmen, eonks, printers, and numerous others, work on the Sundays. Theirs are deemed by the law, works of necessity.

'a fabulously good read, informative and perfectly relevant..Buy it' -- The Observer (Monty Don) 12 November 2000

Book Description:

Throughout the course of his life, Cobbett (1763–1835) was constantly concerned with improving the living conditions of the labouring classes.
