“Of the Gladdest Moments in Human Life, methinks, is the departure upon a distant journey, into unknown lands.  Shaking off with one mighty effort the fetters of habit, the laden weight of routine, the slavery of home, man feels once more happy.  The blood flows with the fast irculation of childhood

          ……Afresh Dawns the Morn of Life….”
