Yep. His capital did not accidentally not last for three centuries so he should have given it to his family or spent it..
Just to be absolutely clear, this is 100% what you would do? A simple yes or no will suffice.

I understand why you believe that the good-will of others is less likely than capital lasting for three hundred years though.
Never said that.

People in general and for historical reasons Americans even more so like to imagine that they are independent individuals who do not have to rely on anyybody or anything. It hurts to realize that one depends on others and on the specific social system one lives in.
Yeah, like Offenhouse relying on his lawyers and money...

So who is more naive, the guy who thinks that the people who unfreeze him will not be cruel to him or the guy who thinks that people will protect his property while he is absent for three hundred years?
