The Anglo-Saxon kings in Beowulf are very generous with their wealth to those who have served them. Consequently this exchange of wealth shows a positive relationship among the kings and their subjects. For example, Hrothgar gives Beowulf gifts in order to thank him for defeating both Grendel and Grendel’s mother: “Then Halfdane’s son presented Beowulf with a gold standard as a victory gift, an embroidered banner; also brest-mail and a helmet; and a sword carried high, that was both precious object and token of honour.” (1019-1023).

The Bible gives several examples of faithful men who were wealthy, such as Abraham, whom the Apostle Paul calls “The father of all those having faith.” Abraham was very wealthy, not stingy, nor overly attached to what he earned. Job was also a very wealthy man who was always ready to help the poor and afflicted.

I feel as though the overall message of the piece is that with the support of common citizens, McKinley was able to leave behind a successful economy for his people.
