How Morgan's Wealth Began.
The foundation of the great wealth
of J. P. Morgan was laid by the great
fire which swept New York city in
1835. At that time Mr. Morgan's
father was a youth of 15 years and a
dry goods clerk in Hartford, and his
grand-father was a modest innkeeper.
He was the proprietor of the Cit3
Hotel in Hartford. While the flames
swept New York in 1835 the Aetna
Fire Insurance Company of Hart
ford, was known to be a heavy loser.
It had not then become so great a
financial institution that it could face
such a loss without misgivings. Many
stockholders became alarmed at a
great sacrifice. Some almost were
ready to give them away, in the fear
that they would be heavily assessed
to meet the loss incurred in New
York. As was usual, .such topics
were discussed in the hotel corridors,
and Mr. Morgan was offered much
stock nearly as a gift. John Warbur
ton, who was one of the wealthiest
men in the country, advised him to
take all he could get at these prices.
and advanced the money to him.
The innkeeper began buying, and
soon had bought a majority of the
stock at prices ranging from 2 1-2 to
1o cents or. the dollar. Six leading
men in Hartford then signed a note
for $100,000, discounted it at the
Hartford Bank and placed the pro
ceeds at the disposal of the insur
ance company. The company met a11
of its losses and wrote a large amount
of newv business. The result was a
great boom for the company and Mr.
Morgan founid himself w"rth $i5o,
ooo when the tangles were straight
Mr. Morgan's arst thought was for
his son, who was working as a dry
goods clerk. He decided that his
son. Ju- ius S. Morgan. should become
a merchant. An interest was bought
for him in a large mercantile house
in Boston. The firm prospered and
in a few years young Morgan sold his
interest for $500,0oo. He continued
in the mercantile business for sever
l years longer. however, and increas
ed his fortune to the extent of $430,
ooo. Junius S. Morgan then determ
ined to go to London, where he be
came partner to George Peabody, the
American banker. Here he adhered
to the same strict integrity which
had made him successful in his native
country, and he began to train his
son, J. Pierpont Morgan. in the same
way, 3. P. Morgan worked for years*
of his father's banking house, until he
was recognized as one of the leading
f.,rvign expcr: In the world. He
then return-:d : the United States.
Today J. Pierpont Morgan. is believed
to be worth more than Sioo.oo,o000.
