* I think this is the dictation assignment, taken from a google etext copy of Charlotte Mason's Geographical reader:

pg 312, last seven lines:
And then when the cherries are ripe, such gatherings, such merry meetings and cherry eatings! Not that the kentish folk eat all their own cherries; most of the fruit goes to Covent Gerden Market, and the waggons may be heard rumbling along all through the night to be at this London market by four next morning.

Page 314, lines 1-13:
The people of Kent divide their coTinty into three parts. One district has "health without wealth" that is the country of the breezy Downs, "the backbone of Kent," stretching through the county from Surrey to the chalk cliffs on the coast. Another district has "health and wealth"; that is the greater part of the county, especially the healthful hop-growing districts. The third division has "wealth without health." To this belongs the marshes along the mouths of the Swale and Medway, which are rich enough, for the low marshy lands produce deep, rich grass, fine cattle pastures; but though cattle thrive, men suffer ; low fever and ague are always abroad.
