2036. DEBT (Revolutionary), Principle of Payment.—

The principle on which it [the
paper money debt] shall be paid I take to be
settled, though not directly, yet virtually, by
the resolution of Congress of June 3d, 1784;
that is, that they will pay the holder, or his
representative, what the money was worth at
the time he received it, with an interest from
that time of six per cent. per annum.—
To H. S. Crevecoeur. Washington ed. i, 595. Ford ed., iv, 253.
(P. July. 1786)
