From Lincoln's last Secretary of Treasury (a portfolio he then held under Johnson) comes this "major address" (per ANB) on American financial policy after the Civil War and McCulloch's proposed contraction of the greenback. McCulloch was an early settler of Fort Wayne and a successful Indiana banker; aside from monetary policy, there is much here on Reconstruction, kind words for Lincoln and mention of the free black labor market in the South.
