And, indeed, I know not that we have suffered much from its being so- it is true that our lord and lady live much on their estates abroad, but at least they are here part of their time, and their castellan does not press us more heavily during their absence than does our lord when at home. He is a goodly knight, is Sir Aylmer, a just man and kindly, and, being a cousin of our ladys, they do wisely and well in placing all things in his hands during their absence. Ay, we have nought to grumble at, for we might have done worse if we had had an English lord for our master, who might have called us into the field when he chose, and have pressed us to the utmost of his rights whenever he needed money. The speakers were a man and woman, who were standing looking on at a party of men practising at the butts on the village green at Summerley, one of the hamlets on the estates of Sir Eustace de Villeroy, in Hampshire.
