Williams signs the preface, 'To the People of the United States, and more especially to the People of the State of New York.' He argues that government bonds "should not be sold in foreign countries, as in that case you must pay interest to the foreign bondholder, and thus compel the nation to pay tribute."
He urges that American currency "be secured with United States, State and City Corporation Stocks, thus creating a home demand for these stocks," and likens such a reform to Christ's expulsion of the money-changers. He buttresses his arguments with nine letters on banking and currency.
