ABOUT THE SERIES

First Look:
       Hugh Donovan is an agent with the British King's Foreign Service.
       By the strictest interpretation of the job description, Donovan would be considered a courier in the employ of the British Crown. The history of this job goes back to the 12th Century. From the time the Foreign Office was created, around 1780, those working this job would be under its control though apparently in 1824 management was handed to the Home Office and a special group called the Foreign Service Messengers Department.
       Whether this applies to Donovan is unknown as I have yet to be able to read any of the stories (3 copies have been found online but each is far more than I could afford).

       The stories mentioned below were all likely published in the pages of Pearson's (UK) possibly all in 1917 or some also in 1916. Certainly evidence points to at least one, Within Four Walls being in the magazine.
