Description

When the. class in corporations asked me to lecture upon the United States Steel Corporation, I replied I had not at band such of the documents use.d in its organization as would justify a legal discussion, and I did not wish to rely upon newspaper reports as to their contents. I promised, however, to try to secure authentic information. In order to do this, I wrote Messrs. J. P. Horgan & Co., requesting copies of such papers as were not considered private, stating what use was to be made of them. In reply to this request, they very kindly sent me copies of the Charter, By-laws, and Circulars used in organizing the company, printed in the Appendix. When the lectures were prepared, there was no expectation of publishing them; after the delivery, many requests for them in more permanent form, than mere. not.es taken at the time they were delivered, have induced me to print them. They appear substantially as read to the class. The legal view taken herein, requires, in fairness, that the documents upon which it is based, should be given in full, in order that those who are interested will have before them the materials for forming independent conclusions.
