My valise contains books principally, with some articles of wearing apparel, said the professor, opening his grip. The customs officer looked with suspicion on the whole outfit, and evidently did not like the tone of the American. He seemed to be treating the customs department in a light and airy manner, and the officer was too much impressed by the dignity of his position not to resent flippancy.

Robert Barr was born on 16th September 1849 in Glasgow, Scotland, but he and his parents emigrated to Upper Canada when he was just four years old. He attended Toronto Normal School to train as a teacher and this career path led him to become headmaster of the Central School of Windsor, Ontario. During his time as a headteacher he began to contribute short stories to the Detroit Free Press, a publication for whom he left the teaching profession to become a staff member in 1876.

More books by Robert Barr. In the midst of their wooing and ensuing complications a war breaks out. A rag-tag army of Irish-American immigrants invade the neighborhood in their attempt to conquer Canada and force England to free the Irish. The Face and the Mask. Based on the Fenian invasion - strange but true, only the facts have been altered. Everything is eventually resolved with humor and wit.
