John Hendricks was bear-leading at the time. He had originally studied for Holy Orders; but had abandoned the Church later for private reasons connected with his faith; and had taken to teaching and tutoring instead.
He was an honest; upstanding fellow of five-and-thirty; incorruptible; intelligent in a simple; straightforward way. He played games with his head; more than most Englishmen do; but he went through life without much calculation. He had qualities that made boys like and respect him; he won their confidence. Poor; proud; ambitious; he realised that fate offered him a chance when the Secretary of State for Scotland asked him if he would give up his other pupils for a year and take his son; Lord Ernie; round the world upon an educational trip that might make a man of him.
