    Bats in the Belfry is a humorous short story in the tradition of the Victorian bedroom farce. Percy Biffin, an awkward house-guest at the summer residence of Sir Borwick Trout, is unexpectedly called on in the middle of the night to remove a bat from the beautiful young Julia Trout's bedroom. His presence in the young lady's bedroom is misinterpreted by every person who learns of it...and the more Biffin tries to extricate himself, the worse the situation becomes.

    Harry Garham made a great name for himself as a writer of light verse and humorous stories, including the inimitable Ruthless Rhymes for Heartless Homes. His classic story, 'Biffin on the Bassoon', recounts a tale of decidedly amateur musician who inadvertently finds himself playing the bassoon solo at the inaugural performance by the London Philmelodic of Heinzmacher's Die Schöpfung, with comic results.
