with her the manner of greatness. It

THE STORY OF
The Personal Word by Mr. Lawson
Personally I know that one hunclr/ed millions of dollars were lost,
thirty men committed suicide, and twenty previously reputable citi-
zens went to the penitentiary, directly because of Amalgamated.
It was largely because of my efforts that the foundation of
Amalgamated was successfully laid. It was created because of my
work. I was because of what I stood for, because I had the public's"-]
confidence, and because my promises had been kept that the plain
people invested two hundred million dollars of their savings, and it'- Jl
was because of trickery and broken promises that the public lost the
enormous sums they did. i
My motives for writing the Story of Amalgamated are manifold:
I have unwittingly been made the instrument by which thousands
upon thousands of investors in America and Europe have been plun-t^
dered. I wish them to know my position as to the past, that they may
acquit me of intentional wrong-doing as to the present, that they-
may know that I am doing all in my power to right the wrongs that'
have been committed and as to the future, that they may see how

In the articles by Mr. Lawson, beginning in the July number,
under the caption of "Frenzied Finance, The Story of Amalgamated,".-J
we have a narrative from Mr. Lawson's own lips, how, in the last few,T.
years, he has seen millions of dollars won without right, and
sands of men ruined. It is a story of financial tragedy of to-day. -Z)j
In the great financial happenings of recent years story tellers
have given their version political economists their theories reform-
ers their pictures and historians their tablets. For the first time in"
the history of High Finance we have the High Priest tell it as it hap-
pened, and it is for Everybody's Magazine to publish "the cold-Jv.
blooded facts," for Mr. Lawson has pledged himself to tell the truth, *s
the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.
