683. BANKS, Abuses of.—[further continued].

The enormous abuses of
the banking system are not only prostrating
our commerce, but producing revolution of
property, which without more wisdom than
we possess, will be much greater than were
produced by the Revolutionary paper. That,
too, had the merit of purchasing our liberties,
while the present trash has only furnished
aliment to usurers and swindlers.—
To Richard Rush. Ford ed., x, 133.
(M. June. 1819)
