Greater cricketers than he - that is, in the sense of merely being greater exponents of the art of batting or bowling - have disappeared from our midst, leaving behind them, moreover, careers not easily effaced, yet none of them had so subtly grown into our hearts and affections as Teddy Roper.

They had to make a hundred against the Australians, or do the hat trick against Surrey or Yorkshire, to become idolized by the man in the street, a fact which should not be overlooked.Not so he, however. I think no one has quite properly defined what that gift of the gods called personality really is, but at any rate the gods had endowed him with the full measure of it, and to the eyes of most of us, the gods quite well knew what they were about, for Roper had a character well worthy of the distinction.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
