This is a statement of the governor opposing the federal governments introduction of a national currency to replace all others then in common use, such as British or Spanish coinage and of the more common bank-issued paper currency. The governor directs all banks within the state to honor all the paper currency formerly used within the state and to ignore the federal government's attempts at making such currency illegal.
