Excerpt from Experiments With Alternate Currents of High Potential and High Frequency: A Lecture Delivered Before the Institution of Electrical Engineers, London
The boy was early put to his books, and upon his father's removal to Gospic he spent four years in the public school, and later, three years in the Real School, as it is called. His escapades were such as most quickwitted boys go through, although be varied the programme on one oc casion by getting imprisoned in a remote mountain chapel rarely visited for service; and on another occasion by fall ing headlong into a huge kettle of boiling milk, just drawn from the paternal herds. A third curious episode was that connected with his efforts to ﬂy when, attempting to navigate the air with the aid of an old umbrella, he had, as might be expected, a very bad fall, and was laid up for six weeks.
