PART I 

It is a great thing for a lad when he is first turned into the
independence of lodgings.  I do not think I ever was so satisfied
and proud in my life as when, at seventeen, I sate down in a
little three-cornered room above a pastry-cook's shop in the
county town of Eltham.  My father had left me that afternoon,
after delivering himself of a few plain precepts, strongly
expressed, for my guidance in the new course of life on which I
was entering.  I was to be a clerk under the engineer who had
undertaken to make the little branch line from Eltham to Hornby.
