About the Author:

P. Hampson, the writer of this clever work of fiction, was in fact Peter Hampson Ditchfield. At first he seems like an unlikely writer for this footlights beyond-the-fringe skit. He was born in 1854 and educated at Oriel College, Oxford, where he studied mathematics. He received a third-class B.A. degree. He was ordained in 1878 and became a priest the following year. His obituary states that he “occupied a distinguished place in the literary life of the country” and that his “easy, graceful style” made many of his books “a very great vogue”.
