In the tradition of Burke and Pitt the Elder – - Wemyss's Appalling Hobby:
From the Party Guilty of Committing 'Gate of Ivory, Gate of Horn'
In the tradition of Burke and Pitt the Elder –

– I convey my best wishes to that nation founded upon the rights of Britons and the tenets of British liberty, ‘who prefer poverty with liberty to gilded chains and sordid affluence; and who will die in defence of their rights as men, as freemen’: ‘not only devoted to liberty, but to liberty according to English ideas and on English principles’; to whom and with whom, now jointly, the Mother Country and the eldest daughter must continue to provide ‘the sanctuary of liberty, the sacred temple consecrated to our common faith; [towards which] wherever the chosen race and sons of England worship Freedom, they will turn their faces’, as before.

Now in day six of our post-storm power loss, I am mostly conscious of my enslavement to internet access, so it is salutary to be reminded to reflect on the liberty I enjoy. :)

I keep meaning to ask: is it possible to get Sensible Places in a non-Kindle format? When I read electronically, it's on my laptop.

Yes, it is.

And - yes, it is. On the right side of the page, 'Buy now with 1-click', there is an option 'Available on your PC'; and of course it's available in paperback, http://www.lulu.com/shop/gmw-wemyss/sensible-places-essays-on-place-time-countryside/paperback/product-20207279.html, you dear, lovely person to have asked.
