"A Cotswold Day."
With two photographs. Bates's first published essay on the English countryside balances local color, social commentary, and evocative descriptions of towns and countryside largely protected from "the disease of ugliness [that] spreads with the machine [the automobile]." Taking the tone of a travel essay, Bates continues his Cotswold wanderings in "England Living and England Dead." In The New Clarion (August 27, 1932, i, 12, 271).
