Example text

Until the nineties, there was no compulsory publication of balance sheets showing separately cash on hand at the Bank of England and money at call and on short notice. 114 Actual business practices within banks varied, and supervision of the books did not necessarily increase over the century. A report in 1880 by Chief Cashier, Chief Accountant and Secretary of the Bank of England, Mr. Hammond Chubb, reveals fluctuations in attitudes about the need for safeguards against fraudulent accounting. In his report, Chubb notes that Thomason Hankey’s Principles of Banking (1867) assumed that the higher departments of the organization checked the accounts of the lower, the chief accountant, for example, overseeing the accounts of the chief cashier.

20 Bagehot’s figuration of the banking crisis in the city is similar to the language he uses to describe the sexual and psychological panic masked in the letters. 21 He worries, too, that his ‘‘wild and wearing feelings’’ are a ‘‘plague’’ to Eliza. ’’22 Given Bagehot’s emotional susceptibility, it must be recalled that Eliza and her sister went to Edinburgh to receive medical ‘‘rubbings’’ from a Dr. Beveridge, ostensibly for chronic headaches that plagued the fragile sisters. Although the actual medical condition from which Eliza suffered is uncertain, her own descriptions suggest the psychosomatic ‘‘nervous’’ diseases so common to middle- and upper-class Victorian women.

E. ’’1 Victorian descriptions of speculation, financial crisis, and the Bank Act of 1844 illustrate the panicked underside of the scientific, objective language ostensibly favored by professional economists. 2 In this chapter, I consider explicit and subliminal Gothic tropes in the writings of Bagehot, Marx, Overstone, and other Victorians as they discuss financial panic. I argue that panicked accounts of financial disaster suggest that the objective reporting of professionalized economics elides but cannot cancel out a whole range of knowledge about the trade cycle when it excludes language that conveys emotional – and even bodily – responses to panic.
