From Farm to Fortune by Horatio Alger

Nat Nason's Strange Experience

ILLUSTRATED -   Nat, a country boy, quarrels with his miserly uncle and goes to New York City to seek his fortune.  Nat Nason, an orphan, was first taken in by his Aunt Mary, who did what she could for him. When she dies his uncle, Abner Balberry, who owns an Ohio farm, took custody. When Abner mistreats him, Nat sells a cow and uses the money to travel to New York City. After several misfortunes, good luck puts him in the hands of John Garwell, a kind and honest real estate broker.  Nat begins as a seven-dollar-a-week clerk in Mr. Garwell's office and soon rises to the position of secretary. Yet, Mr. Garwell proves to be a more valuable friend than employer, as he helps to make a discovery that changes Nat’s life irreversibly

    In 1964, at the age of 12, I saw T.A.M.I. for the first time. But it wasn't my last. I must have watched this pnenomehal concert at least a dozen times; sitting through showing after showing at the neighborhood movie theater over several days. True, I was only age 12, but the memories never faded and grew stronger over the past 42 years. Recalling some of the performers, Chuck Berry, Lesley Gore, Beach Boys, Rolling Stones [with Mick Jagger's signature gyrations], Martha and The Vandellas, Four Tops, Gerry and The Pacemakers, Marvin Gaye, The Supremes and the list goes on, but the greatest of all, Mr. Dynamite, James Brown. That performance is literally one of the greatest dancing and singing performances of the Rock and Roll and Rhythm and Blues era of all time. Every entertainer that has evolved through the 21st century, took their dancing cue, and rhythm section from the hardest working man in show business, James Brown.' The T.A.M.I. Show could have ended with him. Nevertheless, the energy throughout the show was absolutely crazy and contagious. The young people, Black and White together, screaming for the entertainers, dancing and just going berserk. The go-go' dancers and simple stage set-up kept the focus on the performer on stage at that time. In an era of racism, prejudice, civil rights movement and segregation, The T.A.M.I. Show for a while helped us all to forget our trouble and fears and differences in skin color and just have fun. Teenagers of America have fun.
