Do Not Hate Upsets

In the spirit of adventure, young Lord Clive set out from his British home for India. The ship upon which he sailed was caught in a terrific storm, and continuous adverse gales drove it far off the course. Finally it limped into a South American harbor. There he had to remain for many months before being able to get passage to India. But during the long wait, he acquired the Portuguese language, which qualified him when he did reach India to take an important position with the East India Company. This ultimately resulted in his being appointed by the Crown as Governor General of India. Do not deplore upsets; they may be God’s messengers. (King’s Business).
