I found it interesting. What a busy man he was. So sad about their son it did happen a lot in those days.

Thanks for that, DIZZI. I found it very interesting! My, he did a lot of walking, didn't he? So sad, losing his young son but he seemed to accept it very matter of factly as they probably did in those days, it being a common occurance.
