  • Ludger shared from a Personal Document
    Roger Carbury did not believe in the Railway.  He did not believe in Fisker, nor in Melmotte, and certainly not in the Board generally.  Paul Montague had acted in opposition to his advice in yielding to the seductions of Fisker.  The whole thing was to his mind false, fraudulent, and ruinous.  Of what nature could be a Company which should have itself directed by such men as Lord Alfred Grendall and Sir Felix Carbury?
