Reading Experience:

It is amusing to find him writing to Sturt, in 1900, to persuade him that it would be a good idea to try to sell 'Bettesworth' to Pearson's (a firm for which he was not a reader and adviser)- he suggests that he himself write a preface for it, and that it be published under the title 'Talks with my Gardener: a study of the English peasant.'
