Works about W.T. Stead

It was five-and-twenty years ago, in the grimy little town of Howdon-on-Tyne – it was on the “ballast-hill” – the playground of its children – that a boy of twelve years old felled to the ground a boy who had gone to look at a girl who had turned aside to tie up her garter. That boy has since become the author of “The Maiden Tribute of Modern Babylon,” in which he has not ceased to be faithful to his boyish idea of the sacredness of the modesty and virtue of an English girl.. Benjamin Waugh
