Excerpt from Letters From a Self-Made Merchant to His Son: Being the Letters Written by John Graham, Head of the House of Graham Company, Pork-Packers in Chicago, Familiarly Known on 'Change as "Old Gorgon Graham," to His Son, Pierrepont, Facetiously Known to His Intimates as "Piggy" Dear Pierrepont: Your Ma got back safe this morning and she wants me to be sure to tell you not to over-study, and I want to tell you to be sure not to under-study. What we're really sending you to Harvard for is to get a little of the education that's so good and plenty there. When it's passed around you don't want to be bashful, but reach right out and take a big helping every time, for I want you to get your share. You'll find that education's about the only thing lying around loose in this world, and that it's about the only thing a fellow can have as much of as he's willing to haul away. Everything else is screwed down tight and the screw-driver lost. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
