Quotation of the Day

 “[President] Cleveland and Carlisle decided to act at once.  In 1895 there was but a single person to turn to in such a situation [America as nearly insolvent], a sole individual [John Pierpont Morgan] who commanded both the financial resources and the confidence of the American and international business communities to save the United States government from bankruptcy.” From H. W. Brand’s The Reckless Decade, America in the 1890s, Copyright © 1995 by H. W. Brands, University of Chicago Press edition 2002, Page 74.
