A woodbine and a quick read of the paper.
Millican Dalton was born 154 years ago today at Neathead, Alston. I would urge you to read widely about his life.
I had the great pleasure as a youth of living in his splendid ‘hotel’ in Borrowdale for half a year. We would chat every morning as i made coffee on his belvedere.
His was a life lived fully. Happy birthday marra x
