News-sheets, Chapbooks and Broadsides

I was perusing the web for something the other day when suddenly I saw an image of myself visiting a school. A quick search found a number of other web pages about my visits. Not only did they bring back good memories, I thought I should put links to some of them here. And now I have!

I shall have to keep my eye out in future to see if I appear anywhere else. Apparently Sir William Petty is to feature this very Friday in the Barnsley Chronicle. If he does, then I can’t wait to show my two little boys the picture.
