It is not strange for a Greek to be good a cricket. The Greeks have played cricket since ancient times. (A comment upon Xenophon Balaskas the S.A. Test player)
So that's how they got so knocked about.
Shakeski - Stratford is to have a Russian production of Shakespeare. Far be it from Low to perturb Lucy Houston, but one never knows to what lengths such goings-on may lead.
Charge by Col. Blimp - Gad, sir, Lord Doodlembuck is right. The ingratitude of the Destitute Areas for the Income Tax cuts is simply disgusting. Dash it, they'll be wanting incomes next.
