After completing his 'Every Day Book' Hone undertook this work which is a fascinating series of articles on just about every subject imaginable. For instance;


The Barber.


'Barbers are distinguished by peculiarities appertaining to no other class of men. They have a caste, and are a race of themselves. The members of this ancient and gentle profession - foul befall the libeller who shall designate it a trade - are mild, peacable, cheerful, polite and communicative............'


Tommy Bell of Houghton-le-Spring, Durham.


'This is an eccentric, good-humoured character - a lover of the chirruping cup - and a favourite of the pitmen of Durham.'


This is one of those books that will never fail to entertain the reader.
