But his gaiety was short-lived. As the hours wore on his spirits deserted him; he lapsed into gloom and silence, from which all the efforts of his friends could not rouse him.

This is a collection of non-fiction short stories, compiled in a random order, as opposed to a chronological one, covering various phases of England’s history.
