Johnny Gunner’s Path

“In connection with this same business one Johnny Gunner has been named to me, as the only workman my grandfather could find in the neighbourhood able to deal with road-waggon wheels. Those large and cumbersome vehicles, meant to carry the sort of goods now loaded on railway trucks, had hind wheels six feet high or more, and very wide. And since Master Gunner was singular in his skill to handle them, it is not surprising if he took advantage of his position. Several times he was discharged, but each time had to be re-engaged. He lived at Hale, on the opposite side of Farnham Park.  In order to get home the more quickly he used to climb the fence about a furlong away from the shop and strike across the Park. A track through the turf there was pointed out to me as ‘Johnny Gunner’s Path’”
