"June Rain / Hot, a griffin's mouth of flame, / The sun rasped with his golden tongue / The city streets, till men and walls shriveled; / The dusty air stagnated.
At the third noon a wind rippled, / A wide sea silently breaking; / A thick veil of rain-drops / Hid the sun and the hard blue. / A grey garment of rain, / Cold as hoar frost in April, / Enwrapped us." -- Pg. 18. Very good .

Senator Nelson Aldrich of Rhode Island played a leading role in the creation of a United States central bank. Aldrich conducted a nationwide campaign for sweeping banking reforms "with a view to creating a flexible currency that would expand and contract in volume as the necessities of business might dictate..The campaign was brilliantly successful. In November 1911, the Convention of American Bankers, in session at New Orleans, indorsed the Aldrich Plan. A bill based upon it was drawn up by the Monetary Commission and submitted to Congress." Unluckily for Aldrich, in the 1912 election the Democrats took possession of the House. "The bill of the Monetary Commission was quietly set aside..Thereafter, he could do nothing but stand aside while the victorious party, laboring hard to make the country believe they were not continuing his work, brought the reform movement to a conclusion by establishing the system of the Federal Reserve. It was not altogether a conclusion he could approve.." [Quotations from DAB]. In this address to the Academy of Political Science, Aldrich expresses his reservations about the Democrats' bill.
