Look inside the book:
Sippy's, and when we got about harf way across it, I guess you'd see a reel River then, for it's so wide that you carn't see the land on either side of it, so you sees nothink else but the River, and as that's what you wanted for to see, you carn't werry well grumble then.' ...We was a passing a werry butiful bit of the river called a Back Water, and he says, says he, 'As it's so preshus hot in the sun, why don't we run in there and enjoy the shade for a time, while we have our lunch?' ...But on our butiful little steamer on our luvly little river, altho the gests had most suttenly all brekfasted afore they cum, why we hadn't started much about half-a-nour, afore three or fore on 'em came creeping down into the tite little cabin and asking for jest a cup of tea and a hegg or two, and a few shrimps; and, in less than a nour arterwards, harf a duzzen more on 'em had jest a glass or two of wine and a sandwich, and all a arsking that most important of all questions on bord a Tems Yot, 'What time do we lunch?'
About John Alexander Hammerton, the Author:
Sir John Alexander Hammerton (born 27 February 1871 in Alexandria, Scotland; died 12 May 1949 in London) is described by the Dictionary of National Biography as 'the most successful creator of large-scale works of reference that Britain has known'. ...In his introduction to volume 1, he concedes 'Although it remains a storehouse of information for future students of the period, 'The Great War,' as that set of thirteen massive volumes was called, would now require to be largely re-written in light of later knowledge' - and so the Popular History was written 'embodying the gist of post-war revelations and official documents'.
