Sail Your Money Maker

From the Kentucky New Era on this day in 1936:

The big Queen Mary broke no records on the way back, but did something more important in the eyes of the intelligent British--she actually made money and will continue making money. That the English understand. They disliked Napoleon calling them "a nation of shopkeepers," but at least they understand shopkeeping, and it was Napoleon not Wellington, that landed on St. Helena.
