AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Mr. Doogood featured Algie, a city dude, who went to stay with friends in a country, home. He was the victim of incessant practical joking, which at times seemed questionable in his role of guest, but his impregnable good humour and forgivable self-appreciation made him impervious to ridicule. His experiences were lightened owing to one of the twin maidens falling in love with him. Her removal of a harmless snake from his bed was one of the acts of mercy. But Algie, although he was induced to ride an ass nine miles for a doctor who was not needed, was not a two-legged ass. At unexpected moments he showed himself a crack shot, and a good judge of a future wife. His visit ended happily, and 'the end of a perfect day' was charmingly screened.'
