On his rides he saw many examples of injustice and poverty which angered him. Therefore, in [Pg 30] order to get the hops out of the liquor, you must have a strainer. The next stage of the liquor is in the tun-tub, where it is set to work. In the passage which I have just quoted from chap. In addressing myself to you, I am to presume that you have entered upon your present stage of life, having acted upon the precepts contained in that letter; and that, of course, you are a sober, abstinent, industrious and well-informed young man. He also worked briefly as a gardener in the King's garden at Kew.

Men are not to be called ignorant merely because they cannot make upon paper certain marks with a pen, or because they do not know the meaning of such marks when made by others. Hops may be strong; and yet not good. To refute lies is not, at present, my business; but it is my business to give you, in as small a compass as possible, one striking proof that they are lies; and thereby to put you well upon your guard for the whole of the rest of your life. Great attention is therefore necessary in this respect. But, observe, this stick which goes six or eight inches through the hole must be raised by degrees, and the wort must be let out slowly, in order to keep back the sediment.

The jingoist abroad now became a troublemaker at home. His deepest commitment was to the freedom of the press, which meant "the freedom of examining and exposing the actions of public men", irrespective of their rank. In the first place not a word is allowed to be uttered on the stage, which has not been previously approved of by the Lord Chamberlain; that is to say, by a person appointed by the Ministry, who, at his pleasure, allows, or dis allows, of any piece, or any words in a piece, submitted to his inspection. Of these parishes 22 have now no churches at all; 74 contain less than souls each: and have no parsonage-houses.

Make the boiler of copper, and not of sheet-iron, and fix it on a stand with a fire-place and stove-pipe; and then you have the whole to brew out of doors with as well as in-doors, which is a very great convenience.

A Correspondent at Morpeth says, the whole of the utensils used by him are a twenty-gallon pot, a mashing-tub, that also answers for a tun-tub, and a shallow tub for a cooler; and that these are plenty for a person who is any thing of a contriver. But, in general, in the every-day life, despicable are those who suffer any part of their happiness to depend upon what they have to eat or to drink, provided they have a sufficiency of wholesome food; despicable is the man, and worse than despicable the youth, that would make any sacrifice, however small, whether of money or of time, or of anything else, in order to secure a dinner different from that which he would have had without such sacrifice.

The government, seeing sedition in even the most moderate proposals for change, repressed dissent, and the following year Cobbett was forced to flee to the United States to avoid arrest. For the want of these, the job is put off until a later hour: this causes a stripping and another dressing bout; or, you go in a slovenly state all that day, and the next day the thing must be done, or cleanliness must be abandoned altogether.

Nothing like heat. Show not thy valiantness in wine; for wine hath destroyed many. And, with what ease have I conveyed upon numerous important subjects, information and instruction to millions now alive, and provided a store of both for millions yet unborn!

The cask should be placed on a stand [Pg 33] with legs about a foot long.

Books by William Cobbett

How many of us, arrived at only forty years, have to repent; nay, which of us has not to repent, or has not had to repent, that he did not, at an earlier age, possess a great stock of knowledge of that kind which has an immediate effect on our personal ease and happiness; that kind of knowledge, upon which the cheerfulness and the harmony of our homes depend!

Turn your back on Whitehall and on Somerset-House; leave the Customs and Excise to the feeble and low-minded; look not for success to favour, to partiality, to friendship, or to what is called interest: write it on your heart, that you will depend solely on your own merit and your own exertions.

Indeed, it is what used to be done by almost every labouring man in the kingdom, until the high price of malt and comparatively low price of wages rendered the people too poor and miserable to be able to brew at all. Second, a mashing-tub to contain sixty gallons; for the malt is to be in this along with the water.

I skim read it, looking for the gems of useful information on agricultural wages, the cruelty of the Game Laws and the plight of farm labourers and tenant farmers January 1, Val William Cobbett was a social campaigner on behalf of the rural poor.

Then I ate a bit of cheese, or pork, and bread. Men fail much oftener from want of perseverance than from want of talent and of good disposition: as the race was not to the hare but to the tortoise, so the meed of success in study is to him who is not in haste, but to him who proceeds with a steady and even step.

There may have been natural genius: but genius alone, not all the genius in the world, could, without something more, have conducted me through these perils. Small beer may be tapped almost directly. I am now convinced that that was an error. Cobbett could sell only just over a thousand copies a week.

William Cobbett is the man to ask. Here is his book of practical advice to the rural labouring 'cottager' (first published as a part-work in ), the precursor in many ways to the handbooks on self-sufficiency that today entice so many city-dwellers.
