No not Archie's bottom, but Archibald Butt

i found myself thinking of Archie Butt tonight. My mother kept his collected letters by her bedside. An enormous hardbound book with tiny print. She kept it for times when she couldn't sleep. She said it sent her right off every time!

Anyway-- here is Archie Butt, in all of his wikipedia glory. The book is long gone somewhere-- but I have other books of my own for the same purpose.
