Online eText: "Southey's Colloquies" in Macaulay's Historical Essays.

Letter: Albany, March 3, 1853,  "I am sorry to say that I am engaged to dinner on Wednesday the 16th, if I should be able to go out, which is by no means certain. Ever yours truly, TB Macaulay

Thomas Babington Macaulay (1800-1859) ~ The eloquent English historian  was among the earliest authors to recognize how the Industrial Revolution enabled millions to survive and prosper.  In his famous essay "Southey's Colloquies on Society" (1830), he wrote: "In the old world, we must confess ourselves unable to find any satisfactory record of any great nation, past or present, in which he working classes have been in a more comfortable situation than in England during the last thirty years.  When this island was thinly peopled, it was barbarous; there was little capital; and that little was insecure.  It is now the richest and most highly civilised spot in the world; but the population is dense...when we compare our own condition with that of our ancestors, we think it clear that the advantages arising from the progress of civilisation have far more than counterbalanced the disadvantages arising from the progress of population.  While our numbers have increased tenfold, our wealth has increased a hundredfold...

"People live longer because they are better fed, better lodged, better clothed, and better attended in sickness, and…these improvements are, owing to that increase of national wealth which the manufacturing system has produced…We see in almost every part of the annals of mankind how the industry of individuals, struggling up against wars, taxes, famines, conflagrations, mischievous prohibitions, and more mischievous protections, creates faster than any governments can squander, and repairs whatever invaders can destroy. We see the wealth of nations increasing, and all the arts of life approaching nearer and nearer to perfection, in spite of the grossest corruption and the wildest profusion on the part of rulers." 

Roderick George Macbeth 1858-1934
Policing the Plains; Being the Real-Life Record of the Famous Royal North-West Mounted Police 1921 (NY, Hodder & Stoughton); 320 pages
MacBeth is unsympathetic to the Métis cause and claims that they had no right to engage in the Resistance of 1885. The NWMP, on the other hand, are placed in a favourable light. They had done their duty in warning the authorities of the coming rebellion. When it finally did break out, they were quick to do their part in suppressing it. The book shows no indication of research or documentation.

The making of the Canadian West: being the reminiscences of an eye-witness: 1898 ~  W. Briggs ~  230 pages

Roderick George MacBeth was born in the Red River colony and lived through both Manitoba Rebellions. His book concentrates on the events in Manitoba, but includes two chapters on the Northwest Rebellion. He has some sympathy for the métis and Indians plight, but depicts Riel as an ambitious madman.

Denis Mackail
Romance to the Rescue

The Square Circle ~ 1931 Houghton Mifflin Co~  One of MacKail's most popular and critically acclaimed novels, this follows the lives of the Londoners who live around Tiverton Square  for 10 months. Although MacKail was a writer long before his older sister started producing novels under her second married name of  Angela Thirkell, she is more remembered today; her novels are more factual one of the small town, middle class, England. MacKail's,  which focus more on the upper middle class of London, are enlivened by his commentary on 'life' - an attitude influenced by his long friendship with P. G. Wodehouse.

Greenery Street ~ PG Wodehouse described this 1925 novel as ‘so good that it makes one feel that it's the only possible way of writing a book, to take an ordinary couple and just tell the reader all about them.’ Greenery Street can be read on two levels – it is a touching description of a young couple's first year together in London, but it is also a homage – something rare in fiction – to happy married life. Ian and Felicity Foster are shown as they arrive at 23 Greenery Street, an undisguised and still unchanged Walpole Street in Chelsea. Their uneventful but always interesting everyday life is the main subject of a novel that evokes the charmingly contented and timeless while managing to be both funny and profound about human relations. Denis Mackail was a grandson of Edward Burne-Jones on his mother's side and son of JW Mackail, the eminent classical scholar; his sister was the novelist Angela Thirkell. He wrote nearly a book a year for thirty years. 
Greenery Street, Persephone Book No. 35, was written in 1925 when Denis Mackail was forty. It looks back with happiness and a tinge of nostalgia to 1917, eight years previously, when he was twenty-five and had come to live in 'Greenery' Street in Chelsea with his twenty-one year-old wife.
Bill the Bachelor ~ Boston: Houghton Mifflin Co., 1922.
The story of  Sir James Matthew Barrie A Biography ~ London: Peter Davies, 1941. 736 pages, 

Denis Mackail wrote nearly a book a year between 1920 and 1950; and  Greenery Street is the best, which was also the view of Allen Lane of Penguin, who reissued it as a very early Penguin in 1937. After his wife died, in 1949 when she was only 53, Denis stopped writing; this book remains as a memorial to their life between 1917, when they came to Walpole Street, and 1923, when they left to move to a larger house (and, coincidentally, were succeeded by the newly-married Jan Maxtone-Grahame, the 'Jan Struther' who would later write Mrs Miniver set in much the same kind of house). 'Oh dear,' Denis wrote in 1942, 'how often I dream that we are back there. For nothing can ever take the place or dull the memory of the first little house, and even Greenery Street failed to get it out of my system.'
