    Excerpt from An Exmoor Scolding: In the Propriety and Decency of Exmoor Language

    The following collection was originally made, about the beginning of the present century, by a blind itinerant fidler, (one Peter Lock, of N orth Moulton, or its neighbourhood, who was a man of some humour, and though his skill and dexterity as a musician is said to have recommended him to the notice of the great, his more common converse with the lower class Of people gave him frequent opportunities of hearin and Observing their phrases and diction, an as persons deprived Of sight have generally a good memory, he was thereby the better enabled to retain and re peat them. This attracted the notice of a neighbourin cler y man, who by the fidler' s assistance putt is moor Scolding into the form in which we now have it, and before his death (which happened soon after the year communicated it to the editor Of the first and subsequent editions, who perfected the Courtsh1p but copies of the Scold ing were, for some time before and after this, handed about m manuscript, of which the writer hereof has seen one near 40 years since, which was then taken to be the original composition of the clergyman aforesaid, few being then apprehensive of its having any other author, or how far the person who furnished the materials might claim title thereto, though his fame as a fidler was not yet extinct.
