Note: Arup was a banker during tough times. Read HERE his early 1930s writing of a farmer, Dan Brock who borrowed endlessly and lost all. This story is provided by Arup's daughter, Beatrice (Garson) Johnson and family. Beatrice found the story in 1986. Dan Brock is not a real person but, per Arup, does represent at least one such person with similar behavior. Please read and copy to enjoy this account.
