New faces on fa­mil­iar bills

Re “Plan for woman on $ 10 bill lauded,” June 19

Trea­sury Sec­re­tary Ja­cob J. Lew’s plan to pos­si­bly re­place Alexan­der Hamil­ton on many of our $ 10 bills with a yet- to- be­named woman should be stopped cold.

Hamil­ton was one of our Found­ing Fathers. He au­thored many of the Fed­er­al­ist pa­pers, fought in the Rev­o­lu­tion­ary War and re­solved our na­tional debt there­after.

In con­trast, An­drew Jack­son, adorn­ing our $ 20 bill, vi­o­lated treaties with Na­tive Amer­i­cans. If any­one’s face is to be re­placed on our cur­rency, let it be Jack­son’s. Phil and Mary Ellen Barnes San Pe­dro
