"The acquisition of the Erin spelt for me a new joy. Only then did I begin to realize that it is not good for any man to be tied, neck and heel, to his office desk. No matter how hard I worked there was always the complete change and pleasure of a week-end on the Erin to break the monotony and to give me fresh vitality. Besides, I found I could have much more companionship on my ship than I could possibly have ashore. By and by, the Erin became famous for her visitors. Looking back now it gives me intense satisfaction to recall the many prominent and distinguished people to whom I had the honor of acting as host aboard my floating home. And here let me say that these people were not merely aristocrats — they were the men and women who were pulling their weight in the Ship of Life in one form or another.”
