“Too poor to possess the precious ore’s. And too much of a stranger to borrow, We issued today – “our promise to pay,” And hoped to redeem on the morrow, The days rolled by, and the weeks became years, But our coffers were empty still; No one was aware that the Treasury’d quake if a dollar should drop in “the till?”
Written in a Richmond Virginia Hotel Lobby shortly after the Surrender of General Joe Johnston & his Army of Tennessee…Late April of 1865
