1911. Glyn, English novelist, whose best-selling romantic novels were once considered daring and slightly scandalous. The Reason Why begins: People often wondered what nation the great financier, Francis Markrute, originally sprang from. He was now a naturalized Englishman and he looked English enough. He was slight and fair, and had an immaculately groomed appearance generally-which even the best of valets cannot always produce. He wore his clothes with that quiet, unconscious air which is particularly English. He had no perceptible accent-only a deliberate way of speaking.
