Holloway S. Prater:

The lives and career of good men, of great men, and of men of enterprise
always are interesting. They furnish examples for the young to imitate; their
successes stimulate and console the disheartened and unfortunate. Every man
who has, but self-denial, energy and industry, risen from poverty to a postion
of prominence, is beyond question one whose life is worth perusing.
