"In my wooden hut, by means of a folding card-table and a remnant of black satin for tablecloth, I made a small shrine for a few of the books that Roland and I had admired and read together. ""The Story of an African Farm"" was there and ""The Poems of Paul Verlaine"", as well as ""The Garden of Kama"" and ""Pecheur d"Islande"". To these I added Robert Hugh Benson"s Prayer Book, ""Vexilla Regis"", not only in honour of Roland"s Catholicism, but because my mother had sent me some lines, which I frequently read and cried over, from Benson"s ""Prayer after a Crushing Bereavement"":"
