It was suggested to me that, having lived a long life, as a squire and a parson, a churchman and a sportsman, in country and city, with high and low, I should have something to say, which would interest others, about the changes which I have seen ; and with the hope which is given to every man who has done his best, the result of that suggestion is presented by the writer to those who have so long and so kindly encouraged him to write. I make no apology for sudden transitions from solemn to humorous discourse. Thoughts grave and mirthful bring shadow or sunshine to our hearts, like the uncertain glories of an April day, and I have sketched them as they came.
