Little Boy Lost - Northampton in 1865
by Peter J Bridge
There is little more heart-breaking for parents than to lose a child, especially one of tender years, in whom love and dreams for the future were the warp and weft of a precious tapestry. One thing worse is for that child to be lost, stolen, or somehow disappeared. The not knowing, the despair, intermingled with hopeless hope, ensures that the soreness of the heart is ever present.
