later, years, displayed many of the same aspects of character we have
come to know already in the Diary - his attention to detail, his
persistence in following something through (even when in ill health as
he was then), his concern that all should be done in the very best way,
his interest in new methods and technology and desire that appropriate
recognition be given to those deserving of it. We know how Sam has been
studying mathematics diligently and we see from this that his love of
the subject and respect for those who were masters of it remained
throughout his life.
