Reader's note

This is a lovely edition ofWessex Tales; an excellent collection of short stories by the literary genius Thomas Hardy. Hardy's research into history took him to many different places as he states in his preface - Among the many devices for concealing smuggled goods in caves and pits of the earth, that of planting an apple-tree in a tray or box which was placed over the mouth of the pit is, I believe, unique, and it is detailed in one of the tales precisely as described by an old carrier of ‘tubs’—a man who was afterwards in my father’s employ for over thirty years. I never gathered from his reminiscences what means were adopted for lifting the tree, which, with its roots, earth, and receptacle, must have been of considerable weight. There is no doubt, however, that the thing was done through many years - a fascinating look at the past through classic fiction!
