Wise Government 39

Dear Mr. Webster,

“Paper money has had the effect in your state that it will ever have, to ruin commerce, oppress the honest, and open the door to every species of fraud and injustice…If ever again our nation stumbles upon unfunded paper, it shall surely be like death to our body politic. This country will crash.” G. Washington
