That this book is no longer published leads me to doubt the literacy of the modern press.

|Message||My name is Mike Willis, I am the grandson of the now late William Hanson, a builder from Frieth in Bucks.|
According to the family William carried out some work for Cassandra on his house in Fingest, as part payment for the work he took an oak dresser, this dresser has now come down to me.
It is probably of little value but certainly of some interest.
I do wonder if anyone else knew of the dresser outside of my family.

|Message||I bought my '5 bob' copy at W.H.Smiths on Leeds station concourse and it gets dug out at least once every year.. |
I remember I went to work on my bike that week because I'd blown my bus fare money on the book.
The man was a genius with words .. His wit, his depth of understanding and his ability to make the simplest things interesting..
I've never lent my book out but told many people about him.. Now they can read some of his work for themselves .. Well done.
Regards from Spain. KR
