Frank E Gibbard Posted March 13, 2013 Share Posted March 13, 2013 "To my darling boy be of literature the very welcome and willing guest mark, learn it, and inwardly digest." A message in hand-nibbed words penned with slightly faded blue ink. In the front of a second hand book it gave me pause to have a further think and take more than a second look. Signature of the evident father endorsed with a single kiss caused me to wonder how such a personal present had got abandoned like this. The note inscribed from William to his Tom raised the volume's impact I pondered on a young son, owner of that tome, a war that was to come and if the Tom to whom it was given ever made it safely home to a father.
