MESSAGE OF GOV. B. GRATZ BROWN, VETOING THE CONCURRENT RESOLUTION INSTRUCTING THE FUND COMMISSIONERS OF THE STATE OF MISSOURI, TO PAY THE MATURING DEBT OF THE STATE IN CURRENCY.

Jefferson City: Meridith and Peabody, 1872. 15pp, stitched, some dustsoil, Good+. Congressman from St. Louis, later Missouri's Senator and Governor, Brown objects to the legislature's suggestion that the State does not owe the subject debts. "The continuous recognition of these bonds for twenty years as in all respects perfect and obligatory, the fact that no shadow of question has been raised as to their meaning in the past, and that it was a promise to pay coin for coin received, must now stop the State from insinuating any doubt of the correctness of the issue."
