Bewick_ramsay300_caption

from an audio recording of Bewick’s Memoir by Bob Browell.

Bewick wrote his Memoir at the age of seventy-five so that his children, and especially his daughter Jane, should come to know more of their family history.
 Bob Browell (1928-2009) was latterly a volunteer at Cherryburn, a lecturer on Thomas Bewick and a talented artist. You can read about his life and times here http://www.bewicksociety.org/cherryburn_times/pdfs/CT%20Summer%202010jk%20ema...
This is the first of eleven passages read from the Memoir which appeared on a cassette tape in the late 1980s.
