How the public debt is to be paid or specie payments resumed is not so important as that a plan should be adopted and acquiesced in. You elected us in 1980 to end this prescription for disaster, and I don't believe you reelected us in 1984 to reverse course. How could it be otherwise? Every breath that we draw, every thought of our brain, every instant of life proceeds from God's inexhaustible goodness. When satisfied of these views it is not in human nature that they should not approve and support them.
