Download PDF for this date

Forty-six years after he left England a penniless lad to seek his fortune in far-off Australia, Sol Green, an Australian sheep and cattle magnate, has returned to England a millionaire. This is his first visit to England since he went to Australia to seek and find his fortune. Mr. Green came here for the Derby races but he is utilizing his visit to renew old acquaintances.

When he left England nearly half a century ago, he had one shilling in his pocket. He reached Australia a stranger and friendless. Starting as a small trader in cattle he gradually branched out. He also owns considerable property in Belgium.
