October 26, 1868. "Gentlemen, this is my last drive on a stagecoach," Wells Fargo driver Sage Collier announced to his passengers, as his coach rolled through the Utah night. Reflecting on a half dozen years of staging over the desolate Utah territory, he continued. "I have been engaged in the business long enough, and have made a considerable amount of money out of it. Wells, Fargo & Co. are my bankers. Instead of drawing my money at the end of each month and spending it as most of the other boys do, I have been saving mine, and I now have to my credit in that institution several thousand dollars." The future looked bright. "When I reach Salt Lake City, I shall buy me a lot of books, hire a teacher and go to studying like a good fellow, and see if I can make a man of myself."
