Not like another reproductions of vintage texts (1) we've not used OCR(Optical personality Recognition), as this ends up in undesirable caliber books with brought typos.

Reaction to the First World War sometimes expressed itself in the indulgent hedonism of cocktails, the Charleston, the world of Bertie Wooster; but it also took the form of great social and political causes or, as in the case of Birley and Snell, a firm commitment to the education of the young. In 1927 Fred heard the same 'call' to serve overseas that Paget had responded to nearly two decades earlier. He went under the auspices of the Church Missionary Society to teach in India, at St John's College, Agra.
Fred's origins, though humbler than Paget's, were not dissimilar. The son of a vicar, he had gone as a scholar to Winchester, and then to Oriel College, Oxford. Perhaps he had a chuckle at the story about the head of his college, Provost Phelps. When Fred met him, the old man with his long white beard must have looked ancient (he was almost 80). Back in 1879 he had been part of a delegation of Fellows sent to congratulate their most distinguished 'Old Boy', John Henry 14 FOUNDING FATHERS Newman, on his creation as a cardinal by Pope Leo XIII.
He arrived in Salisbury, Rhodesia at the same time that a young medical practitioner, Godfrey Huggins, was beginning to carve out a new career for himself as a member of the country's Legislative Assembly. These two men - Paget and Huggins - were to be key members of what became known as the 'Establishment Set' in the self-governing colony during subsequent decades. 13 A S C H O O L IN A F R I C A Bishop Paget might under normal circumstances have been thinking of retirement in 1950.
