John Wheatley : Remarks on currency and commerce

[Marginalia]: substantial annotations on several pages, usually associated with marked passages in the text: eg p. 8 para beginning 'I admit that the existing stock of specie, at any given moment [underlined and with the word always in ms above], constitutes the capital, or a portion of the capital of many individuals *...' has ms annotation '*& hence certainly of the nation; a conclusion directly contrary to his position p.3. The function of currency is neither more nor less than the barter of one commodity for another'; p. 20 The first 2 complete paras are marked with vertical lines and have the ms annotation 'extremely inaccurate to calculate our resources from this particular branch of trade'.
