AUTHOR OF "JOINT-METALLISM"

Hon. David A. Wells, LL.D.,.D.C.L., etc.—Your plan is certainly novel and ingenious.

Hon. John E. Russell, Member of Congress from Massachusetts.—The importance of the question you so ably discuss cannot be overestimated.

The Right Hon. Lord Playfair.—It is certainly a much more honest system of bimetallism than the schemes already propounded.

Prof. W. Smart, LL.D., Glasgow.—It is a most suggestive contribution to a subject which is now creating as much interest in Great Britain as it does in its parent country.

W. T. Harris, United States Commissioner of Education.— In my humble opinion the best book on this subject—a subject of vital importance to the prosperity of the people of this country.

Right Rev. H. C. Potter, LL.D., etc.—Much impressed by your argument.

Rev. David H. Greer, D.D.—I think your statement of the question most admirable and convincing.

Hon. Carroll D. Wright, United States Commissioner of Labor.—Your theory attracts me very much. It seems to me that there is within it the solution of the difficulty.

Prof. Francis Wayland, LL.D., Dean of Yale Law School. —If it has not brought complete conviction to my mind, it has certainly shaken some of my pet beliefs.
