Paper Money History:1885 Letter to the New York Times Editor

In August 1885 Mrs Edward Heylyn wrote to the Editor of the New York Times concerning an article it featured a few days before about the history of paper money in ancient countries.

I'm amazed that even as early as the 19th Century people were paying attention to the history of paper currency, and cared enough to send notes to the editor. This excerpt gives us an insight into this interest in paper money from one woman's point of view.
