Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

Today's commentary by Michael Kosares at
www.usagold.com may be of interest. Like so much
other commentary lately, it echoes what we've been
hearing since last September from GATA Chairman Bill
Murphy at www.lemetropolecafe.com.

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

I'm afraid I'll have to leave it to others to divine
the true meaning of the remarks made today to the
House Banking Committee by Treasury Secretary Robert
Rubin and Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan.

Of course I don't trust these guys as far as I could
throw them, and I have to suspect a hidden motive for
everything they do. But the Reuters dispatch follows.

Dear Friends of GATA and Gold:

This report by Harry Bingham, president of Van Eck
Institutional Advisors and manager of PIMCO Precious
Metals Fund, was posted at www.gold-eagle.com

It is notable for its endorsement of GATA Chairman Bill
Murphy's analysis last week that the Bank of England's
announcement of its gold sales was timed to rescue an

Dear Friends of GATA and Gold:

Some interesting news from the Financial Times in
London today.

John M. Wilson, president and CEO of Placer Dome Gold,
is in London for a financial conference and was quoted
as more or less endorsing GATA's position and purpose
without mentioning GATA by name.

NY Post''s John Dizard on Gold and Conspiracy

Section: Daily Dispatches

10:30p EDT Monday, May 17, 1999

Dear Friends of GATA and Gold:

A couple of things on a day that seems to have been
without much news in the precious metals....

1) That scandal story we've been expecting out of
London hasn't quite broken but there have been open
references to it. It seems to be that Prime Minister
Blair's economics adviser is an official of Goldman
Sachs, the great shorter of gold, and so there is

GATA MAKES THE LONDON SUNDAY TIMES

Section: Daily Dispatches

1 p.m. EDT Sunday, May 16, 1999

Dear Friends of GATA and Gold:

You may be interested in New York Post columnist John
Dizard's commentary today about gold and implicitly about
GATA, and my reply. They follow.

GATA is now making the national and international press
in a substantial way. We haven't persuaded the world
yet, but we're coming to the world's attention, which
is the prerequisite.

Dear Friends of GATA and Gold:

GATA hit the business page of the Sunday London
Times today, and some of the quotations about us
were favorable. This is a very encouraging development:
GATA's first break in one of the world's major
newspapers. The article follows.

10 p.m. EDT Saturday, May 15, 1999

Dear Friends of GATA and Gold:

Here's what will be the final exchange for a while
between Martin Armstrong of Princeton Economics and
myself. While I might quibble with him about William
Jennings Bryan, Long-Term Capital Management, and a few
other things here, I accept much of what he says, think
you'll find his history and insight valuable again, and will

Dear Chris:

There is no interest in gold on the part of
institutional investors while coin sales due to Y2K
scares are high. I had dinner with the Royal Canadian

Murphy Commentary for 5/13/99

Section: Daily Dispatches

11:45 p.m. EDT Friday, May 14, 1999

Dear Friends of GATA and Gold:

GATA Chairman Bill Murphy is on the road for a couple
of days and there doesn't seem much to share tonight
about the gold market beyond the usual sources that you
probably check anyway, so I'll share this correspondence
between myself and Martin Armstrong of Princeton
Economics. I hope it's better than nothing!
