C   How to walk
From the life of John Walsh:   Together with his parents he emigrated to Utah in 1856 in one of those ill-fated handcart companies in which so many perished en route on the plains. Two of his family, namely his father and brother, died of cold and starvation, and John became so weak and emaciated that when he reached the valley he had to learn to walk anew.
