Summary Note

Margaret recalls a story of the Well's fine set of sterling silver. When the Japanese invaded Thailand, they had to flee. Wells, at the time, was a headmaster at a boy's school in Chiang Mai. Teachers at the school snuck out and secretly buried the set of silver so as to protect it. Upon returning, the Wells found it had been kept completely intact, and found the deed quite admirable.
