AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF JOHN FRITZ
But what have I done to earn this reception! What little I have done has been much overrated, and I am the re¬ cipient of honor beyond what I deserve; but I hope that my kind friends will continue to overlook my shortcomings, as I have ever tried to do my best.
FuoNT[spii-;cE OF ALnu.u.
I do not now forget the laboring man, and especially the able, brave, and iioble men who loyally stood by me in times of the severest trials that were encountered during my long connection with the iron and steel industries, and who were ever ready to face any hardship or danger that would in any way tend to prevent success. To these kind and loyal men much credit is due for such success as I have attained.
