(Editor's Note: As a young man, Elisha. my grandfather, established a
large business as a ship-chandler. His quarters occupied an entire ware-
house of three and one-half stories and basement on the corner of Burling
Slip, New York City. Elisha also controlled a "Packet Line" between New
York and North Florida. His interests were far-flung throut the world —
as he outfitted ships for many distant lands. Financing many of these
ventures made him a very wealthy man. Before he was forty years old,
he sold out and retired.

Later, Elisha acquired large properties in the Bronx and finally a
very beautiful estate at Huntington, L. I. I have been told by one of the
chief executives of the Telephone Company, that when the first dial
system was being tested, his nanie — with the names of other prominent
old families of New York — was picked for the experimental try-out of
the new system. When I doubted this because my grandfather always
used three '"t's" — the executive exclaimed: "Well, we just dropped one
of them."

My grandfather was not a teetotaler neither am I. However, I am
convinced his record would be as clean as my own — for never having
imbibed to the state of intoxication. He did have an elaborate wine cellar
at Huntington. This, in the eyes of my good mother — bless her soul — was
the work of the Devil.

My father, Samuel Hobart, died five months before I was born. With-
out having had the opportunity of placing my innocent childish clutches
in the old gentleman's heart, he passed away when I was five, leaving me
the mvmificent sum of one dollar.

A high-hatted, slick lawyer, by the name of Rock, settled with the
estate for sizable sums, over a foiu' year period, without my innocent
mother being aware of the situation. While eventually, I had newspaper
notoriety, when a judgment was secured against the lawyer and he was
sent to jail — not even the dollar ever reached me or my mother.

There were others involved. Besides, I don't know the old gentleman's
side of the triangle. He should not be condemned without a hearing.
Despite the odious memories attached to my paternal side, at eight years
