The Cottage On The Green
The farmhouse on The Green
This is not the place to give you the entire story of The Cottage but here are a few glimpses into the book and the history:
~ what we today call cottages are not cottages at all but the homes of moderately well-off yeoman farmers. Cottages were the shacks of the poor, built only to last a few years.
The village pump on The Green
~ the long, extremely wordy documents that the writer had to plough through owed their lack of brevity to the simple fact that lawyers could demand higher fees for such papers, especially in days when the majority of people couldn't read.
