“Cross of Gold” Speech, W. J. Bryan

Bryan and how, according to him, the situation with money and the gold standard versus bimetalism and how it effects the country is similar to that of 1776, but I must mention the fact that his thesis is literally in the last paragraph of his entire stinking essay.

Nicely frustrated,

Emily
