第 20 頁 - I am certainly of opinion," said Mr. Webster, "that gold and silver, at rates fixed by Congress, constitute the legal standard of value in this country, and that neither Congress nor any State has authority to establish any other standard or to displace this standard.
第 78 頁 - The American people, from tradition and interest, favor bimetallism, and the Republican party demands the use of both gold and silver as standard money, with such restrictions and under such provisions, to be determined by legislation, as will secure the maintenance of the parity of values of the two metals, so that the purchasing and debt-paying power of the dollar, whether of silver, gold, or paper, shall be at all times equal.

第 92 頁 - We believe the fall to be mainly due, at all events, to circumstances independent of changes in the production of, or demand for, the precious metals, or the altered relation of silver to gold. " As regards the fall in the gold price of silver, we think that, though it may be due in part to the appreciation of gold, it is mainly due to the depreciation of silver.
第 90 頁 - Looking, then, to the vast changes which occurred prior to 1873 in the relative production of the two metals without any corresponding disturbance in their market value, it appears to us difficult to resist the conclusion that some influence was then at work tending to steady the price of silver, and to keep the ratio which it bore to gold approximately stable.
