Debt can not be
increased indefinitely by selling US treasury bonds & issuing promissary
notes; and the time has come when
taxation and retrenchment
must play their parts.

This can be accomplished only through the passage
of the National Banking Law now before Congress.

the war lasts, its
extraordinary expences, vast sums from taxes.
Duties on imports are
the only exclusive resource of the Nation as distinguished from the States.
Why should not the National Banks & their property and franchises

Henderson to Abraham Lincoln, April 27, 1864
Chase's management of the finances of the nation is contrary to the dictates of
sound policy or common
The sudden decline in stocks in the first week of September
1863, and the rise in the premium of Gold from 127 to 157 in 5 weeks, because
Mr. Chase's friends were short of stocks, should have had its effect upon you
to dismiss such a Secretary of the Treasury.
Mr. Chase benefitted his
friends by asking the National Bank of New York, National Bank of Boston and
National Bank of Philadelphia to loan 50 million, when they are already choked
with US treasury bonds.
The disturbance to the money market from this
loan resulted in a panic, which put stocks down 25% and a rise the premium of
Gold of 30% in 5 weeks.
The value of US treasury bonds were injured by
the means Chase used, and the US currency depreciated 15 to 20%, which it has

Gold, - laid apart, as Congress directed, to pay the interest on the National

Six million of US Gold was obtained from the Govt at about 165
when the price in the market was from 170 to 180.

166 to 185 and two million US Sterling from 5 to 12% under normal exchange

paper money against [Cost?]; & then he & his friend predicted that the
State Banks must fail.

such abominable action of Chase.
The Banks are aroused to the
unprincipled action of Chase's stock-jobbing friends and will resist the

"At the onset of the Dakota War, Sarah Wakefield's husband decided
that she should travel with her children to Fort Ridgely. George Gleason, a
clerk at the Lower Agency warehouse, drove Wakefield, 33, and her children -- a
baby daughter, Lucy, and a 4-year-old son, James.
Their journey was
interrupted by two Indians: Hapa, the man who would antagonize Wakefield
throughout her captivity, and Chaska, the man who became Wakefield's savior.
After stopping Gleason and Wakefield, Hapa wishes to kill both of them. Hapa
"I begged Hapa to spare me," Wakefield wrote, "put out my
hands towards him, but he struck them down. I thought then
my doom was sealed
and if it had not been for Chaska, my bones would now be bleaching on that
prairie, and my children with Little Crow."
Chaska persuaded Hapa to
spare Wakefield, and she was taken as a war captive. Wakefield spent six weeks
living among the Mdewakanton Dakota, often in danger from a few Dakota who felt
captives should be killed. Chaska and his family intervened. Wakefield was
still nursing her daughter.
Weak and unaccustomed to living

protected her from murder,

Religious intolerance occurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious

web site marks the founding of a system of philosophy named The Truth of the

on reason which requires no leap of faith, accepts no tithes, has no supreme
leader, no church buildings and in which each and every individual is
encouraged to develop a personal relation with the Creator and Sustainer
through the pursuit of the knowledge of reality in the hope of curing the
spiritual corruption that has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of The

American social mores and values have declined precipitously
over the last century as the corrupt international cartel has garnered more and
more power. This power rests in the ability to deceive the populace in general

operations. The results have been the destruction of the family and the
destruction of social structures that do not adhere to the corrupt
