  1. The two documents at the end of this book describe agreements made by the Merritts in order to end their court case. What does Appendix A tell us about the case?

  2. What does Rockefeller's lawyer require the Merritts to do in order to settle?

  3. Appendix B is said to be the actual agreement between Rockefeller's company and the Merritts. What agreement is made in this document?

  4. If Leonidas Merritt brought the first case against Rockefeller, why do you think his entire family (brothers, sisters-in-law, etc.) had to sign the agreement?
