1909. The novelist Mrs. Humphrey Ward (Mary Arnold Ward), was the niece of the poet Matthew Arnold, and granddaughter of Dr. Thomas Arnold, the headmaster of Rugby School who was immortalized as a character in the novel Tom Brown's Schooldays. The book begins: A stifling hot day! General Hobson lifted his hat and mopped his forehead indignantly. What on earth this place can be like in June I can't conceive! The tenth of April, and I'll be bound the thermometer's somewhere near eighty in the shade. You never find the English climate playing you these tricks. Roger Barnes looked at his uncle with amusement. Don't you like heat, Uncle Archie? Ah, but I forgot, it's American heat. See other titles by this author available from Kessinger Publishing.
