Chapter One: A young man in the colonies

Chapter One: A young man in the colonies

Note: Several biographers refer to Thomas King as having been a member of the British Parliament before emigrating to New Zealand. This is impossible as the minimum age for representation is twenty-one, and Thomas was twenty when he arrived in New Zealand. This was pointed out to me in correspondence with the House of Commons.
