Overview

Excerpt from From a Pedagogue's Sketch-Book

The author of these sketches has drawn from an experience gathered in a fairly wide circle, the centre of which is English Public School life in general.

It will be evident to the reader that, unlike some recently published romances, the scene of which can be recognised at once, no school in particular is here represented. Much less has there been any wish to expose or "show up" the defects of any school or the foibles of any individual. The characters drawn and the scenes in which they are set arc typical of Public Schools; and if there is a touch of exaggeration here and there, it will be readily toned down by the "grain of salt" which the satirist expects the reader to supply.
