The True Inheritance

In Chapter six, when the truth is revealed about where Gatsby got the money (from Dan Cody) I believe that some relief is brought to Nick. I think that Gatsby was under a lot of stress from missing Daisy that he didn't quite want to reveal the truth about him before.

"He told me all this very much later, but I've put it all down here with the idea of exploding those first wild rumors about his antecedents, which weren't even faintly true. Moreover he told it to me at a time of confusion, when I had reached the point of believing everything and nothing about him. So I take advantage of his short halt, while Gatsby, so to speak, caught his breath, to clear this set of misconceptions away." [Fitzgerald, 102]
