Andrew never finished his schooling and certainly never had any formal education. But I know this man loved and valued education. As I sit here today with Andrew's copy of Byron's Poetical Works in my hands, pages spotted with Andrew's hand written notes, I know he never stopped trying to advance the progression of his mind through self learning and lots of books. Indeed, if his daughters were any sign of the literary, political, theological discussions which took place in the Divers home, the educational environment must have been enticingly rich.
