      "The Ralli, Botassi and Benaki families were friends. They were associates in joint ventures; acted as agents for their respective enterprises in various cities in the South; and, on occassions, worked for each other. Rigid employer-employee caste relations never existed among the wealthy Greek cotton entrepreneurs. Personal relations were fraternal and business associations were temporary."
