Tracy, Louis: What Would You Have Done: v1. 14 Mar 2013
He was born in Liverpool to a well-to-do middle-class family. At first he was educated at home and then at the French Seminary at Douai. Around 1884 he became a reporter for a local paper - 'The Northern Echo' at Darlington, circulating in parts of Durham and North Yorkshire]; later he worked for papers in Cardiff and Allahabad. During 1892-1894 he was closely associated with Arthur Harmsworth, in 'The Sun' and 'The Evening News and Post'.
A SUSPICIOUS country policeman, reporting to his district superintendent certain tragic happenings which he was wholly unable to account for, described Robert Mannering as "a man of good appearance who spoke like a gentleman." That was later in the day, however—say, an hour or more after Mannering raised his eyes from close scrutiny of a small-scale map to gaze in surprise at a heavy bank of black cloud travelling swiftly over the moor from the south-west.
