Now when wu went through this
lonoy crisis we knew way off in

igal tender which had saved the lifu
of the nation , but they were draining
the world to carry on this huge war and

Without degal tender you could
have no muskets , no powder

No ; they demand what legislation

thu great nujorry of thu American
