Arthur Mellen Wellington (December 20, 1847 – May 17, 1895) was an American civil engineer who wrote the 1877 book The Economic Theory of the Location of Railways. The saying that An engineer can do for a dollar what any fool can do for two is attributed to him. He was involved in the design and construction of new railways in Mexico. He was chief engineer of the Toledo and Canada Southern Railroad.
He has served as the President of the International Reading Association (IRA), as President of the National Reading Conference, and as a member of the International Reading Association Board of Directors.
At Allington, Dale of Allington had always been known as a king. And now I will speak of the Great House of Allington. After all, it was not very great; nor was it surrounded by much of that exquisite nobility of park appurtenance which graces the habitations of most of our old landed proprietors.
Allington is a village and civil parish in Wiltshire, England, about 3 miles (5 km) southeast of Amesbury and 7 miles (11 km) northeast of Salisbury. The parish includes the village of Boscombe; both villages are on the River Bourne and the A338 road. The south of the parish has evidence of Iron Age settlement and a Romano-British villa; the Port Way Roman road crossed the parish in the southeast. Allington is recorded in the Domesday Book of 1086.
This latest Maynard Allington book is a geniune gift to all of us who enjoy reading a strong, character driven story delivered in gripping, Hemingway style prose. I've admired Allington's work for years, but "Fiddler's Green" is the ultimate showcase for this writer's considerable talent. Anna Flowers, author.
This book was the first in the series in which I found myself wondering a couple of times if I liked it as well as the rest. I found the character of Lily Dale maddening at times. I completely sympathized with her creator, who, after Ah, me. This is a most lovely series for lovers of English pastoral life and students of human nature. As the fifth book in the Chronicles of Barsetshire series, The Small House at Allington casts a much smaller net than its predecessors, and, from what I recall, from the finale that follows.
