Look inside the book:
Burslem at the grammar school on the hill, the amazing news came one day that Bob Clive, the wild boy who had terrorized the tradespeople, plagued his master, led the school in tremendous fights with the town boys, and suffered more birchings than any scholar of his time – Bob Clive, the scapegrace who had been packed off to India as a last resource, had turned out, as his father said, 'not such a booby after all,' – had indeed proved himself to be a military genius. ...But I seed ya, Measter Desmond, t'other day, in speech win that – that Diggle as he do call hisself, and – and, I tell ya true, sir, I dunna like the looks on him; no, he binna a right man; an' I were afeard as he med ha' bin fillin' yer head wi' fine tales about the wonders o' the world an' all.'
