9781605970837: Letters from a Self-Made Merchant to His Son

George Lorimer was born in Kentucky in 1859. In 1899 he became editor-in-chief of The Saturday Evening Post, and remained in charge until his death. He served as vice president, president, and chairman of the Curtis Publishing Company which published the Post. Published in 1903 the complete title of this book is Letters from a Self-Made Merchant to His Son Being the Letters written by John Graham, Head of the House of Graham & Company, Pork-Packers in Chicago, familiarly known on 'Change as "Old Gorgon Graham," to his Son, Pierrepont, facetiously known to his intimates as "Piggy." The letters and illustrations in this book provide a wonderful look at he relationship of a father to his young who is on the verge of manhood.

From Publishers Weekly :

Perhaps this book was a big hit when it first appeared in 1902, but it is preachy and unquaintly old-fashioned to the contemporary reader. Lorimer was an editor at the Saturday Evening Post, and this appears to be nothing more than a puffed-up piece from that magazine. The first "letter," written to Pierrepont Graham, a freshman at Harvard, by his pork-packing father in Chicago, contains all sorts of fatherly advice about college life, and what a young man should and should not do. But, as Pierrepont ages and goes to work in Dad's company, the homilies continue with few variations, and the folksy examples (one per chapter) of how not to behave, plus endless metaphors, become boring, and the book's conceit wears thin. There is much advice (indeed, that is all the book contains), but as Graham senior himself notes, it is the same advice that young men always hear. However, there are a few bright spots. Graham's rules for business conversation are useful and still timely: "Have something to say. Say it. Stop talking."

From Library Journal :

These fictional correspondences first appeared in the Saturday Evening Post and were collected into a single volume in 1902. With its portraits of small-town life, humor, and wisdom, this title was a huge success at a time when our country was a simpler place. Today, this serves as a sterling piece of Americana.
