The bill presented to Ernest by his father was $537.50 (CAD), which seems a small amount, but today the equivalent value is over $12,000 (CAD)!

What was ETS’s father’s name?
Joseph Logan Thompson was ETS’s father’s name. When Joseph was a young man, he wanted to become a railroad engineer because it was an exciting new field. His father rejected the idea, saying that the railroad was just a passing fad and that horse and buggy would make a great comeback. He insisted that Joseph follow him and his father in the family business as a ship broker.
