I had been having considerable trouble with my wings. The day after I helped the choir I made a dash or two with them, but was not lucky. First off, I flew thirty yards, and then fouled an Irishman and brought him down–brought us both down, in fact. Next, I had a collision with a Bishop–and bowled him down, of course.
