Boreham and Visiting Home

After being busy as a pastor and adding two children to the Boreham family (Ivy and Wroxie), the Mosgiel Church did two wonderful things: They passed a motion of appreciation to their pastor and they gave him six months leave on full salary.

In 1903 the family took a train to Wellington and commenced their journey ‘home’ on the ship, the Tongariro.

Having come to NZ via South Africa they decided to return by the Cape Horn.
