Ch XVI. Rise of Prices

But from by a
variety of causes
a considerable quantity

of being retained
If then the whole amount of the cash in circulation the country
were to be expelled out of it by the proposed paper it
would only be so much the better: and the greater the
degree in which any such effect took place, the
greater would be the advantage. I what degree
it would actually take place, it does not seem
possible to determine: but that in spite of every
thing which could be done by, or wished for desired in this
way on the part of the proposed paper, a large proportion
of the cash in circulation would remain unexpelled,

the capital of the proposed paper would be to be paid
and received in so far as that such interest is demanded
