PROLOGUE BY PADRS MONTY: IN the year that the Colonel died he took little Rupert tosee the swallows fly away. I can find no better beginningthan that.When there devolved upon me as a labour of love theediting of Rupert Rays book, Tell England, I carried themanuscript into my room one bright autumn afternoon, andread it during the fall of a soft evening, till the light failed, and my eyes burned with the strain of reading in the dark.I could hardly leave his ingenuous tale to rise and turn onthe gas. Nor, perhaps, did I want such artificial brightness.There are times when one prefers the twilight.
