Twelve Miles From a Lemon by Sydney Smith
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Reverend Sidney Smith was a respected clergyman who worked steadily for Roman Catholic emancipation despite his own staunch Anglicanism. In 1802 he helped to found "The Edinburgh Review", which became one of the most powerful journals in Britain. This volume contains a selection of his writings together with extracts from his daughter's biography of him. Arranged thematically, the passages deal with "home" and "abroad", politics, social evils, education, religion, and health and happiness. As well as Sidney's renowned wit, the collection enshrines his common sense and eloquent preaching.
