found It more capable of negotiating
the Irish roads than the magnificent
hrnurham that was nlaced at his dis
posal by his friend. Lord iveagh. From
that time on he patronised the some
what quaint National vehicle of Ire
lun.l He often declared that a ten-
mile run along an Irish country road
on a jaunting car was far more pleas
ant and Invigorating than a morning's
gallop in the park.
But other things Irish besides Jaunt
ing cars had an attraction and fasclna.
tlon for the great financier.
The collection of rare specimens of
old Irish lace was one of his hobbies,
and. in this connection, it may be men
tioned that an old irishman who lived
close to his London residence usually
was his "guide, philosopher and friend."
This same old man had a kind of rov
ing commission over England and Ire
land among book stores and curiosity
stores to pick up what he thought waa
of value to J. P. Morgan. An Irish de
tective, who had served many years
In the criminal investigation depart
