1865Otto von Bismarck (1815-1898) | German Chancellor

Very likely false, do not use. I merely leave here for reference, so you don't make the same mistake I have and unwittingly undermine a reasonable position.

The death of Lincoln was a disaster for Christendom. There was no man in the United States great enough to wear his boots and the bankers went anew to grab the riches. I fear that foreign bankers with their craftiness and tortuous tricks will entirely control the exuberant riches of America and use it to systematically corrupt modern civilization.

See WikiQuote on Banking or Gary North's analysis:

    Siem was born in 1861. He lived in the United States. He claimed that Bismarck wrote these words to him in a letter in 1876. He would have been 15 years old at the time.

    What is the source of Siem's fabricated quotation? A 1926 book by a notorious anti-Semite, The Secret World Government Or "The Hidden Hand": The Unrevealed in History By Count Cherep-Spiridovich. The quotation from Siem appears on page 180. You can read the book online. The Count insisted that a "Jewish Conspiracy" assassinated Lincoln.
