"While he read little but the Bible and religious periodicals, his son was working his way through the Rhymney Workmen"s Institute Library and Cassell"s National Library of 3d paperbacks. MacAulay"s essays, Goldsmith"s History of England, Far from the Madding Crowd, Self-Help, Josephus, Plutarch, Shakespeare, Pepys, Johnson"s Lives of the Poets, and The Sorrows of Young Werther were among the books Jones read, often on his employer"s time. (He hid them under the ledger at the Rhymney Iron Works, where he worked a thirteen-hour day as a timekeeper for 9s. a week.)"
