As a matter of tact she was born rich. In 1S65 she in herited some $10.6e.08 which accu mulated upon itself until in SO years it had multiplied nearly 10 times. She also inherited family traditions which had been a pride for three centuries, and which she was anxious to perpetu ate in her children. She was born at New Bedford. Mass. "in November. 1S34. about the 20th." ac cording to her testimony at -one time in court. She was a descendant on her mother's side of Henry Howland. broth er of pilgrim John Howland of the Ma -flower She as sent to a Quaker school on Cape Cod. and to a seminary In Bos ton, and got her first lessons in finance when her aging father entrusted her with some of hip books. Wan Once Belle In Society. She was just 34 years old when ber father died suddenly, leaving her his $$... tl.MO.OOO outright and the income from the other 3S.0M.e60. the principal to be held in trust for her children. It Is forgotten that Hetty Green, then Robinson, was a belle in New York society According to ber own stories she "often danced the whole night through. Even then, however, she liied in a boarding house and was so saving that rather than pay cab bare, she would pull a pair of heavy woolen stockings over her shoes am? alk through the snow to parties. Almost at the same time that her father died. Ler aunt, Sylvia Ann How land. passed away, leaving several mil lion dollars. It is said Hetty Robineon had been brought up from childhood to count this money as hers, and that the aunt expressed the hope that Hetty would some day become, as she did, he richest woman In the country. Controversy Over Will, The division of the aunt's estate, however, was not as expected. Three years after the aunt's death Hetty Green appeared in the I'nited States circuit court in Massachusetts with a IU which she wanted substituted for the one already rrobated. This will was in Mrs. Green's own handwriting. and some of the most famous experts c; the day declared under oath their belief that the two signatures it con tained were not made by the aunt, but were trace by Hetty Green herself ever the or:ginal signature of Sylvia Ann Howland. The litigation is one of the most famous in jourt annals. After an ex pense of J172.OO0, he case was dis missed on a technicality. An appeal was made to the supreme court of the I'nited States, but while this was rending a private settlement was reached. Ylwnys Involved In Suit. From thoe days to the time of her 'leath Hetty Green was involved In 'ine law suit or other, asserting that lawyers were forever trying to rob her of her property. Her antipathy toward them was so violent that he said, "I would rather have my daugh ter burned at the stake than to go through what I have with lawyers." Married a Consul General. She married in 1867. Her husband was Edward H. Green, who was United States consul general In Manila, where re had made a fortune in the silk trade It is said Green, at a public enner, heard someone speak of Hetty Robinson as "the greatest American heiresx." and straightaway announced bis determination to marry her. Be fore the wedding day an agreement was signed to the effect that the wife's fortune should never be drawn on to meet the husband's debts or any of their joint expenses. He died in 18j2 after having lost most of his money In Wall street. ITaccIed Over Special Train. Both Hetty Green and he did busi ness there for many years, but on sepa rate accounts. Old Wall street men have told innume-able stories about ber closeness . One was how she ne gotiated once for a special engine to take her from Philadelphia to New York so that she might not mies a, chance to hake several 'thousand dol lars before the close of the stock ex change. A price was named by the railroad company for an engine and one car. After haggling a few min utes.
