(p.42) Chapter 4 Night on a Mountain
The Marquess of Queensberry

Linda Stratmann

Yale University Press

This chapter describes Queensberry's experience of mountain scrambling. At Cambridge, Queensberry formed a close friendship that was, for a time, to supply a much-needed focus to his life. His twenty-first birthday was to shape the rest of his life, but in a way that no one could have anticipated. Queensberry was never to write about his journey, which must have been two to three days of grief and frustration. When he learned that Francis had still not been found, all hope vanished. Queensberry offered a large sum of money to anyone who could recover the body and, despite having no experience in mountaineering, decided to join the search party due to go out on the following day.
