by Robert Collis read by the Author
Robert Collis wrote a delightful autobiographical book, ' The Silver Fleece', published this spring, in which he described his early days in Dublin, his recollection as a boy, of the 1916 rebellion, his schooldays at Rugby, his travels in America, and his early struggles. The story he is reading tonight has for its hero a research worker in a laboratory who had spent his childhood in Australia, and had been given a koala bear. Still a child, he had to come to England and leave it behind. The denouement is a particularly poignant one.
