  • Notes 
    • "... York loped along at a furious lick; his legs seemed to shoot from under him to land almost too far ahead, but hitting the ground just in time to stop him toppling forward... York was one of the finest swearers in Ashdon, and recounting his `wicked wuds' was one exercise the hamlet boys enjoyed. But he was a most kind and understanding man who knew about wheats, their differences in height, colour and yield. He would snatch a couple of near-ripened ears, rub them in his horny hands to shed the husks, then blow into his cupped hands to winnow husks from grain. Husks clung to his whiskers as he tossed the grain into his mouth. `Wheat is life, boy. Don't let no silly bugger tell you different!' And then a gun went off in the distance, and another shot, and there was Rodwell the keeper taking shots at wood-pigeons. `Silly owd sod,' said York. `Oughter hev more sense, walkin' about arter things what fly.'
