Excerpt from A Hundred Years of Merchant Banking: A History of Brown Brothers and Company Brown, Shipley Company Nand the Allied Firms
Alexander Hargreaves Brown, the senior member of the London house, a short notice of whose parliamentary career appears in the Appendix, no attempt has been made to give any account of the activities of the living members of the firm.
For the opinions expressed and the suggestions made in the following pages, the writer alone is responsible. He is also responsible for the correctness of the facts and dates except so far as he has been able to give his authority for such matters.
If the perusal of this brief history gives to my children and to my partners even a small part of the pleasure which the reproduction of the life of those early days has afforded me, and if the story of the past shall help my partners in the management of the business in the future, I shall be amply repaid.
