Notes, topics or text 

"1) I was standing on the bridge over the Rother at the age of about 12. An old countryman came by and I asked him the name of the river. He replied: 'She ain't got no name and she don't want one'."

"2) In the neighing village of Easebourne [sic] there is a tombstone representing a man killing his wife. The man and the wife, in spite of his having murdered her, were buried together. The village, which being given to smuggling, had no love of the police, had combined to keep his crime a secret, but could not refrain from depicting it on his tombstone."
