Murray, David Christie: Despair's Last Journey. v1. 10 Nov 2013
David Christie Murray (13 April 1847 – 1 August 1907) was an English journalist and writer. Born in High Street, West Bromwich, Staffordshire, one of six sons and five daughters of William Murray and Mary Withers, he was educated in West Bromwich and Spon Lane. At the age of twelve he entered his fathers printing business. At eighteen he was sent to London for further training in the printing business, but, following a failed attempt at romance, he instead joined the army.he became a private with the 4th Royal Irish Dragoon Guards. After being bought out of the service by a Great Aunt, he became a journalist. Initially he wrote leaders for the Wednesbury Advertiser, then worked for the Birmingham Morning News reporting on police cases. In 1871 he was married to Sophie Harris, with whom he had a daughter that died young. He had four children out of wedlock.
The first hint of memory showed a hearth, a fire, and a woman sitting in a chair with an outstretched finger. An invisible hand bunched his petticoats behind, and at his feet was a rug made of looped fragments of cloth of various colours. He lurched across the rug and caught the finger with a sense of adventure and triumph. Somebody clapped hands and laughed. Memory gave no more.
