Excerpt from A Railway Pioneer: Notes by a Civil Engineer in Europe and America From 1838 to 1888

I venture to consider that it was an evidence of my beloved father's sagacity and affectionate kindness when he determined that I should be articled to a civil engineer, for I am persuaded no other profession would have suited me so perfectly or have afforded me more pleasure, excitement, or novelty during the half-century, more or less, that I have had the honour to practise it.

At the time when this momentous decision was arrived at, I had scarcely reached sixteen years of age, but was considered to have completed my education but it soon became obvious to me that I had everything to learn, and that I was only approaching the threshold of the vast storehouse of practical information wherein, by my researches, my future would be either conducted to success or requited by failure.
