Description


Joseph Clayton (1868-1943) wrote this short memoir of his dear friend of fourteen years shortly after Father Dolling's death. Dolling's account of the work at Portsmouth was published. Whilst Ten Years tells the story of the Irish High Church slum-priest's incredible devotion to the poor people of Landport, this memoir encourages the reader to understand all Dolling's work and also his views on politics; the theatre and literature; the Boer War, including soldiers pay; his ?methods? with drunk Vicars; and even the issues of water supply to East London. Therefore, this short Memoir is more than a memorial to the deceased Father Dolling, it provides insights into many aspects of late Victorian city life and attitudes to a wide range of topics.
