B.P’s LAST MESSAGE TO THE SCOUTS
Dear Scouts ,
If you have ever seen the play “Peter Pan” you will remember how the pirate chief was always
making his dying speech because he was afraid that possibly when the time came for him to die he
might not have the time get it off his chest . It is much the same with me , and so , although I am not
at this moment dying . I shall be doing so one of these days and I want to send you parting word of
GOOD BYE .
Remember , it is the last you will hear from me , so think it over .
I have had a most happy life and I want each of you to have a as happy life too . I believe that
God put me in this world to be happy and enjoy life . Happiness doesn’t come from being rich , nor
merely from being successful in your career , nor by self indulgence , one step towards happiness is
to make yourself healthy and strong while you are a boy so that you can be useful so can enjoy life
when you are a man .
Nature study will show how of beauty things God has made the world for you to enjoy . Be
content with what you have got and make the best of it . Look on the bright side of things instead of
the gloomy one . But the real way to get happiness is by giving our happiness to other people . Try
and eave this world better than you find it and when you are turn comes to die you can die happy in
feeling that any rate you have not wasted your time but have done your best “BE PREPARED” in this
way to live happy and to die happy .......... stick to your Scout promise always ................even after
you have ceased to be a boy ................ and God help to do it .
