lowcd to Halg and Robertson. Probably no one else lins been corfsldercd.
In spite of a great dissimilarity In social origins, these two men, both of
whom have mndo very good, resemble each other in their attitude toward their
profession. They are both of the modern typo of soldier the close student ,
of his profession. Robertson began life ns a footman, enlisted nsji private In I

tlon to tho general rulo that no one but a gentleman-born can hold command I
in tho British forces. From tho moment when ho put the uniform on Robert-

used to hire a comrade to read to him while he wns currying his horse. Ho
