Excerpt from Mattie, Vol. 3 of 3: A Stray
To make money - and to keep it when made requires as much genius as to make poetry, rather more, perhaps. A genius of a difierent order, but a very fine one notwithstanding, and one which we can admire at a distance - ou the kerb stones with {our manuscripts under our arms, waiting for the genius's carriage to pass, before we cross to our publishers'. Is not that man a genius who in these latter days rises to wealth by his own exertions, in lieu of having wealth thrust upon him? A genius, with wondrous powers of discrimination, not to be led into a bad thing, but seeing before other people the advantages to accrue from a good one, and making his investments accordingly. A man who peers into the future and beholds his own advance ment, not the step before him, but the apex in the clouds, lost to less keen-sighted folk fighting away at the base - therefore, a wonderful man.
