Does anyone know what the original source of the famous "letting money fructify in the pockets of the people" quote comes from? I find it in Matthew's Gladstone, 1809-1974 but he gives no source. I do not find it in Magnus' biography, neither in Hirst's study of his economic and financial reform. I'm thinking it may be apocryphal, perhaps someone with Morley's biography may know?--Johnbull 03:54, 8 April 2007 (UTC)


Wikiquote no longer allows unsourced quotations, and they are in process of being removed from our pages (see Wikiquote:Limits on quotations); but if you can provide a reliable and precise source for any quote on this list please move it to William Ewart Gladstone. --Antiquary 18:58, 22 April 2009 (UTC)
