The Reverend James Woodforde began his diary simply to keep a record of expenses, but, "Luckily at an early point he decided to expand the text beyond mere expenditure to cover his do i n g s , his regrets, his feelings both waspish and fond about the people he encountered, the social events that opened up in him a vein of generous pleasure or fury, the almost daily card games he lost or won, his casual preaching and praying amid n on e to o large a congregation at his lonely church, his dark fancies at night, the illnesses with scant hope of cure in ice-cold rooms, the hunts and the shoots and the fishing, the tangles with servants, and the irritations with such close rela tiv es as hi s niece Nancy who kept him company and his nephew Bill who had his eye on the maids..." A wonderful insight into eighteenth-century daily life in a handsome volume. Slipcase has a few tiny and small light soiling marks - mainly on on e si de pan el. Fine/Very Good
