The attractive and likable personality of Jimmy Bulstrode and his ingenious and unexpected adventures in love and life give this book a rare charm. The humor, the sentiment, and the cheerful originality of the hero make him a unique figure in fiction.

The food was a feast to the stranger, in spite of nourishment already given him by
