Excerpt from Lombard Street: A Description; Of the Money Market The composition of this little book has occupied a much longer time than, perhaps, my readers may think its length or its importance deserves. It was begun as long ago as the autumn of 1870; and though its progress has been Often suspended by pressing occupations and imperfect health, I have never ceased to work at it when I could. But I fear that in consequence, in some casual illustrations at least, every part Of the book may not seem, as the lawyers would say, to speak from the same time.' The figures and the examples which it is most natural to use at one time are not quite those which it is most natural to use at another and a slowly written book on a living and chang ing subject is apt a little to want unity in this respect.
