Further Advice from a Father’s Heart

Now, a company with a great heritage is a miracle of man’s wisdom.

And surely in such a consideration as this,

its possessor should find only a new spur to activity and honour,

that with all this power of service

he should not prove unserviceable.

He must honourably perform his stewardship.

Whether to help individuals whose birthright and outfit have been swallowed up in his,

Or to further public works and institutions.
