From the Paper:

"London became very wealthy at this point in his life, but spent the money almost as quickly as he received it. Spending thirty thousand dollars on a ship name the Snarck, and eighty thousand dollars on a mansion called the Wolf House. On the night of completion an unknown arsonist burned it down, sadly enough the house was not insured. He also lent many people money, which he never got back. Meanwhile, he had an appendectomy done and was warned about kidney problems. In 1907, London and his wife went on a voyage around the world on the Snarck. While sailing around the world he started writing Martin Eden. The Journey abruptly ended in Australia and London had very little money. To survive he bought plots for stories from Sinclair Lewis, a young struggling writer. Jack London was the most famous author in America but didn't have enough money to support him and his family. Soon after, he began drinking heavily and cheating on his wife, therefore, he couldn't hide his depression any longer. London took morphine to ease his pain and at the age of forty he was questioning his own sanity (www.online-literature.com)."
