WAR-TIME FINANCIAL
PROBLEMS

BY

HARTLEY WITHERS

" Blest paper credit! last and best supply'!
That lends Corruption lighJt*r-^infs ur%%1

Gold imp'd by thee, can

Can pocket States, can fetch" of carry Kings ;

A single leaf shall waft an Army o'er,

Or ship off Senates to a distant Shore ;

A leaf, like Sibyl's, scatter to and fro

Our fates and fortunes, as the winds shall blow ;

Pregnant with thousands flits the Scrap unseen,

And silent sells a King, or buys a Queen."

POPE, Moral Essays.

LONDON

JOHN MURRAY,  ALBEMARLE STREET,  W.
