How to check a bank run
O’Connell is said to have checked a panic on the National Bank of Ireland, of which he was the director, by making the cashier roast the gold that was given in exchange for notes. The people thought they were coining money in the back parlor and that they could not break a bank which could supply sovereigns like hot cakes. Besides, it was uncomfortable to finger them; so that the process of cashing was necessarily slow.
