Excerpt from The Treasury Club: A Story of the Treasury Department, Illustrating How Important a Factor Is Money in Our National Life
In this first volume of the United States Government Series the writer has woven the story out of facts connected with the National Treasury. Many of the characters are real live persons who help to handle the nation's money, and all of the facts are real facts, gathered with much care and painstaking in the National Treasury and its branches. It has been his aim to make his readers familiar with the important work of the United States Treasury Department, - to show how the nation's purse is filled and how the money is used.
In succeeding volumes the scenes will be laid around the State Department, the War Department, the Navy Department, and perhaps other leading departments of the federal government. The information conveyed is deemed of more importance than the story, which is simply the frame of the picture. The accuracy of the information in the present instance is amply attested on the following page by former United States Treasurer Morgan, who generously laid aside his own pressing business to revise the proofs.
