Description


Joseph Clayton (1868-1943) wrote Father Dolling: A Memoir about his dear friend of fourteen years shortly after Dolling's death. Whilst Ten Years in a Portsmouth Slum 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 of 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. 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.
