This third volume covers the middle years at Letheringsett, in barley country. The diarist's husband takes on a brewery apprentice, her nephew Henry Raven (1777-?1825), born like her in the Norfolk village of Whissonsett. The full text of Henry's four-year farming and brewing diary is here intercut with Mary Hardy's abridged record, giving us incomparable insight into working life. The Hardys' business continues to prosper in spite of the war with France: conflict and high taxation form a recurrent backdrop to the diaries. Mary Hardy's world takes on a new dimension--the meeting house. She starts to go to Methodist meetings in nearby villages. It is a quest she spearheads, her husband rarely joining in. Only later does she persuade her daughter and son to take up Methodism too. The set of four volumes is offered at a special price (ISBN 978-0-9573360-4-9), where you can read more about this lavishly illustrated and annotated edition of the diary.
