Arthur, Tom and East work together one night

Illustration for Tom Brown's Schooldays
For a positive role model, boy readers looked to the famous school story of the era, Tom Brown's Schooldays (1857). Once converted by the pious new boy, Arthur, Tom Brown is soon encouraging his old confederate Harry East to adopt a new, conscientious approach to schoolwork [JB]
