Gatsby says, “I can’t say anything in his house, old sport” (?). Gatsby does have money, but it isn’t the kind that allows him into Daisy’s world. Tom knows that his wealth gives him a lot of power and influence and this is what lures Daisy into marrying him.

The other two were that it could be left to the families of the descendents or it can be bequeathed, or left to somebody in a will.
