Some Stories By Famous Men

Here is only Arthur Conan Doyle's part:

SIR ARTHUR CONAN DOYLE, known over the world as a teller of good stories in print, is equally good as an after-dinner raconteur. This is one of his briefer anecdotes of child-life.

"Father, I had a fight with Percy Raymond to-day."

"I know you did," replied the father soberly. "Mr. Raymond came to see me about it."

"Well," said the son, "I hope you came out as well as I did."
