Matthew & Son - Ruth Hamilton (Thistle No. 482)
When Matthew's beloved wife Molly died, there seemed to be nothing anyone could do to console him. At the age of 16, Mark longed to earn his father's respect by assisting with the family business but his father, in grief, seemed beyond help. Tilly Povey, famous for her whiplash tongue and her copious ironing, watched the boy's lonely existence with a heavy heart and resolved to help them both.
