Excerpt from School Days at Rugby
MY dear I blame myself for not having earlier suggested whether you could not, in another edition of Tom Brown, or another story, denounce more decidedly the evils of bullying at schools. You have indeed done so, and in the best way, -by making Flashman, the bully, the most contemptible character; but in that scene of the tossing, and similar passages, you hardly suggest that such things should be stopped, and do not suggest any means of putting an end to them.
This subject has been on my mind for years. It fills me with grief and misery to think What weak and nervous children go through at school, how their health and charac' ter for life are destroyed by rough and brutal treatment.
