A WONDERFUL COLLECTION OF LETTERS FROM THE FAMOUS INDUSTRIALIST AND PHILANTHROPIST. Warm and friendly letters from one of the great industrialists and philathropists of the Gilded Age and beyond, containing some noteworthy pearls of wisdom:"Franklin's words were, 'The hiest worship of God is service to man.' I do believe it is the only true perfect worship," and speaking of Vanderbilt's declining health, "I am truly sorry for the family trouble that has come upon him so soon after the death of his other son. How very little wealth has to do with human happiness." A subgroup includes Carnegie on the Arbitration Treaty, including warm and detailed letters of introduction for Dodge to Lord Rosebery, Arthur Balfour and Jospeh Chamberlain. Arbitration, as a means towards achieving a lasting peace, was an important cause for Carnegie, "the noblest of all causes"" as expressed here in his letter to Dodge.
