Seeler, good on you! How old a boy? Born in Perry's Cove, NL, 1880, my father was 11 in 1891. That spring he got his first job as a Ship's Boy on a fishing schooner, which, using sails only plied its way through the icy waters filled with small pans of ice on its way to the fishing famous cod fishing grounds near the Labrador coast. BTW, in 1953 I was the first UC minister in Happy Valley, Labrador.
