The Spike: or, Victoria College Review, June 1910

En Route

En Route.

"Youth on the prow and pleasure at the helm."

Even as the lights twinkled behind us, we had made or renewed acquaintance with our northern friends. High spirits prevailed; the night was calm, and on deck, under the shining starts, concert parties passed a joyful evening until 10 p.m., when an unrelenting manager ordered all below. At Lyttelton we were met by several old friends, among them Miss and Mr. Barkas, wearing the inspiring green and gold. Christchurch reached, we were soon despatched with our hosts or hostesses, and left to their tender and kindly mercies for the rest of the day.
