J. P. MORGAN'S WILL

When Mr. J. P. Morgan, the American financier, the multimillionaire, died some years ago, it was found that the year before his death, he had made his will. It consisted of about 10,000 words and contained thirty-seven articles.

He made many transactions--some affecting such large sums of money as to disturb the financial equilibrium of the world--yet there was one transaction that evidently stood out in Mr. Morgan's mind as of supreme importance:

"I commit my soul in the hands of my Saviour, full of confidence that, having redeemed me and washed me with His most precious Blood, He will present me faultless before the throne of my Heavenly Father.

"I entreat my children to maintain and defend, at all hazard and at any cost of personal sacrifice, the blessed doctrine of complete Atonement of sins through the Blood of Jesus Christ once offered, and through that alone."
