The Populist NSML was formed two years prior with the aim to continue "the efforts made during [William Jennings Bryan's] presidential campaign of 1896 for national honor and sound money, and the education of people to a realization of the necessity for maintaining the gold standard" (cf. James Livingston, "Origins of the Federal Reserve System" (1989), p. 104). OCLC locates two copies of this edition as of June, 2019, at U. Denver and Ohio History Connection.
