Hilaire Belloc (ed) : The Country Gentleman and Land and Water

‘At present I am “on sick” with lumbago, a horrid name … "Land and Water" is still very optimistic. My thoughts go onward to the dim time after the war, and the politics in ten years time. Here is Belloc gaining a great following; who is a very strong opponent of the Party System, a Strong Anti-Socialist … He is certain to show large in public opinion … I have discovered an original essay on Spring! In a book called "Southward Ho" by Holbrook Jackson in Dent’s Wayfarer’s Library—a good book. There is nowhere to put books here—nowhere! Only in that comic-tragic kit bag. Gott strafe it. A slot machine is what I want, or a valet.

Century: 1900-1945     Reader/Listener/Group: Ivor Bertie Gurney      Print: Serial / periodical
