Henry Codman Potter I was a bishop of the Episcopal Church of the United States. He was known for his interest in social reform and in politics. Excerpt from the book: “The man whose home this made earned twelve cents a week; and, lest we should suppose that his money had a much larger purchasing power than its amount implies, Hallam tells us that the diet of such an one was usually pottage, and his garment a rough hide. The history of wages is almost a literature in itself, and it would be quite impossible to follow the progress of the workman's wages in detail from the fourteenth century to the twentieth”.
