AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Heading back home after many months travelling through his extensive parish, the Padre passes a mileage sign that brings to mind an amusing tale he had heard. An old Chinese gardener who wished to enter his horse in a race was encouraged to withdraw in a rather undignified manner. However, the old man had his revenge.
