Excerpt from Thomas Chalmers

Tom Chalmers went naturally with his big and little brothers - there were nine boys in all - to the parish school, which was not in very effective keeping at the time, and where he was remembered as one of the idlest, strongest, merriest, and most generous - hearted boys in Anstruther school. That he fought as well as played there can be no doubt in such a vigorous atmosphere, but there is a pretty anecdote of the sturdy independence and sense of the little lad, who is said to have taken refuge in a cottage when a bicker was going on, in which sharp and cutting mussel-shells were the missiles I'm no for powder and shot, he said. A more remarkable, and indeed quite singular, little scene occurred, we are told, still earlier, at three years old, when he was found in his nursery, in the dark, pacing up and down and repeating to himself the cry of David, Oh, my son Absalom: oh, Absalom, my son, my son! - the wonderful story, and that wonderful outcry of passion and anguish, having somehow caught the child's ear at an age almost too early to be conceivable as touched by such profound emotion at all.
