"At an early age Timothy Tinpot was left a rich orphan, and went to reside with his guardian, at Chivalry Hall.

The gentleman in question, Mr. Saladin Mountjoy, spent all his time in reading books of knight-errantry, the history of the crusades, works on chivalry, and kindred subjects.

Every available space in the hall was filled with suits of armour, and helmeted visored men..."

So, was Timothy inspired to put on a suit of armor and become a knight himself in the late 19th century.
