The Country Diaries

Another sample from The Country Diaries, edited by Alan Taylor – a collection of entries culled from various English diaries from the seventeenth century to modern times. A short one today:

“What a fine day it is. Let us go out and kill something.” The old reproach against the English. The Squire has just gone by with a shooting party.

Francis Kilvert.
