Opening paragraphs........................

     Gilbert Keith Chesterton, one of the twentieth century's most gifted men of letters, was born on 29 May, 1874, at Campden Hill, Kensington - a district of West London, England.  It would prove to be a year of portents.  For it welcomed not only Chesterton but also Sir Winston Churchill into the world:  both men of keen intellect, ample girth, and literary skill.
