Notes

First edition, presentation copy, inscribed "from the Author" on the title page. Wheatley's Remarks, along with his Essay on the Theory of Money, "received the most contemporary attention, and best stated his theoretical position on the monetary controversy that followed the suspension of cash payments by the Bank of England in 1797" (Palgrave). Wheatley's work was an important foundation of the doctrine that a central bank could control prices through a credit policy.
