The entire action of this book takes place in a small English village. The local doctor, having retired childless, decides he would like to adopt a boy. Being aGovernor of the local Institute for the Poor he goes there and selects a boy who at the age of two had been a foundling, and who is now eleven or twelve. Everyone is keen to make this work, but there is a big difference in social manners between a boy brought up in an Institute, and the boy the doctor would like to have. So a certain amount of retraining has to take place. Of course this is successful in the end, but there are a lot of blips long the way. Our hero makes friends with a local boy who is definitely "non-­U". They run away together in a boat they have nicked for the purpose. For a few days they have various adventures, some enjoyable, but most of them not. On being brought back our hero is sent to a small private school run by a clergyman, who beats the boy mercilessly, so that he runs away from the school, . . .
