practical illustration of working

a plot of their own, more so,

at this time of high price and

scarcity of food. However the

crew we had stuck to the

ship, and we could see

the harbour, financially the

outlook was bright. So we

could dispel the opinion

of those who said the

plot would leave the Club

pounds in debt. The task

was hard, "What of that"

the cause was good. Never

have we had so much real

pleasure in work as the

labor that we have put in
