Bates describes a Sunday excursion available to "city dwellers and office prisoners" from Charing Cross to the Kentish countryside where he lives. He finds "a bit of Scotland, a taste of North country, a glimpse of a German forest, a view as in Somerset -- all in a day, and all in country lying on the very doorstep of London." In New Clarion (June 10, 1933, p. 4).
