Nothing on the English(?) Harry Wild. An American Hollywood film
photographer of the same name is now deceased.
Fritz Spiegl has several entries. As an author, a quote is given from one of
his books; here it is:

Quotation from The Joy of Words

"And do you know," said the Archbishop of Canterbury complaining to Winston
Churchill about the upkeep of Lambeth Palace, "we have 42 bedrooms!"
Churchill replied, "How very inconvenient." adding, ". especially when one
reflects that you have only 39 Articles." Doubtless part of the Winston Book
of Apocrypha; and in any case now so dated that the story has to be
explained to most people under the age of 40.

Tony W.
