howl and constant unrestfulness, in short
he was a kicker. As time passed Chris
grew and waxed strong and his fath[er]
adored him as his white-haired boy. His
bright open contenance plainly fortold
a great future.
At the age of six he began his public
school career. Owing to his shyness his
beginning was rather hampered but
as Chris became acquainted with his
environment he made rapid progress.
In all his work he showed strength of
character, even in his merry whistled
tunes could be detected perseverance.
He had many talents. One, and by no
means the least, was his singing
power. For some years he sang as bass
soloist (of course this is not generally
known) in Christ Church choir.
