Love's pure silver flame gives each innermost spirit invisible warmth.A Haiku Verse
- I went to America in the winter of 1872-73, authorised to secure, if I could, the passage of a bill demonetising silver. It was in the interest of those I represented - the governors of the Bank of England - to have it done. By 1873, gold coins were the only form of coin money.
- On Coinage Act of 1873 of the United States.
