I read the article written by Mr . Robertson, whom I knew, and enjoyed it. However he would be disappointed to see the errors in the use of Sprawl in the article when it should have been Sprowl. I enjoyed going to Mr Percy Sprowl's house on King Street on Halloween night because he and his wife always gave me a large chocolate bar as a treat.
