In response to Will Elliot.. How Does A Granger Get Rich?, written by Andrew on December 09, 1997 at 11:06:29
] I was curious as to how a mere granger becomes as rich as Mr. William Elliot? Is there some trickery behind his money... I mean that's not a particularly wealthy career, is it?
If you mean William Walter Elliot of Persuasion, it was said of his wife that "her father was a grazier, her grandfather had been a butcher". Anyway, what people ghenerally really mean mean when they say such things is that that's how the person started out (before later achieving greater wealth and/or respectability...)
