Letter from Leslie M. Shaw to Theodore Roosevelt

Author:
Shaw, Leslie M. (Leslie Mortier), 1848-1932
Date:
1904-08-03
Description:
Secretary Shaw reports that during the last session of Congress, Senator Aldrich argued that the secretary of the treasury has the authority to purchase silver for subsidiary coinage. Shaw discusses the merit of this claim. He believes this issue is not related to the purchase of silver for coinage into standard dollars. Unlike Ebenezer J. Hill, Shaw does not think the subject should be made an issue in the campaign.
Subject:
Silver coins--Law and legislation, Coinage--Law and legislation, Gold standard, United States. Department of the Treasury, Aldrich, Nelson W. (Nelson Wilmarth), 1841-1915, Hill, Ebenezer J., 1845-1917, Loeb, William, 1866-1937
