Milton Hershey was born near the small village of Derry Church, Pennsylvania, in 1857. It was a __________ beginning that did not foretell his later popularity. Milton only attended school through the fourth grade; at that point, he was apprenticed to a printer in a nearby town. Fortunately for all chocolate lovers, Milton did not excel as a printer.


Would you please show me what the bold part means here? I am wondering what is its relation with the previous or next sentences or phrases-- although I know what is means literally.

Many thanks

    Had he stayed a printer, he would not have founded Hershey Foods. What follows the bold part says that he wasn't very good at being a printer.
