In practice though the accession of addition to the
stock of money in the course of the present reign
has been so great, and though the quantity
of bullion that has from time to time been
experiencing the sort of glut above spoken of
must accordingly have been as great, and as also
the number of individuals by whom it has
been experienced, yet in practice it has not
been by individuals that the influx of money
into the Mint has in general been supplied, but by
the Bank of England. The reason is - that
by reason of certain circumstances in particular to the situation
of that great and opulent company, it
is enabled to make purchases of bullion to advantage
at a certain price in circumstances in which
individuals in general would not be able to
make such purchases to equal advantage at
that price. And thus it is, that although
it must can not have been but by and through the
hands of individuals that those additions have
from time to time been supplied - yet the supply
has passed from the hands of the individual
not directly immediately but through the medium
of the Bank.
