Robert Morris (financier): In 1747, at the age of 13, I left my home in Liverpool to emigrate to the Americas and join my father, who a tobacco manufacturing business here. In addition to helping my father at times with his work and observing the ways of business, I was provided with a tutor, who found me to be an intelligent and quick-learning student. Around 1750, when I was about 16, my father sent me to Philadelphia to study with a family friend and pursue an apprenticeship.
