The Golden Hynde

Total Issues: 2

THE GOLDEN HYNDE was a charming hardback periodical published by two young ladies from an address in Wigmore Street. It ran for only two numbers, in December 1913 and June 1914. The title was explained as being from the smallest ship of Drake's fleet, in the hope that the venture would bring back treasure 'that will bring joy and health to many little lives that would otherwise be sad and dull," for all proceeds were to go toward sending poor London children for holidays in the country. The first number, which resulted in L7 3s. 7d. being sent to the Children's Holiday Fund, opened with Buchan's story "'Divus' Johnston", and included a short piece on Indian Railway travel by E. M. Forster. The second number included Belloc's HOMEWARD ('Lift up your hearts in Gumber! Laugh the Weald!') and three splendid pages by Buchan, "The Hynde Let Loose," being three lessons in how to be witty and get your sayings quoted in the OBSERVER of a Sunday.
